ASU Prof Receives Teacher Quality Grant

February 22, 2012

Dr. Donna Gee, associate professor of teacher education at Angelo State University, has been awarded a $90,000 Teacher Quality Grant from the U.S. Department of Education to extend her project aimed at improving elementary school mathematics education in West Texas.

The grant is being issued through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to fund Gee’s program titled “Algebra for Upper Elementary Teachers.”  It is a continuation of a three-year project titled “Enhancing Number Sense” that Gee began with a previous Teacher Quality Grant in 2009.

ASU and the San Angelo Independent School District are partners in the program which will provide faculty development for elementary math teachers in Region XV. 

The Teacher Quality Grant program makes awards through a competitive review process with the most highly ranked and recommended projects being selected for funding.  The request for applications process focuses in the areas of greatest need for teacher professional development in Texas. 

More information is available by calling Gee at 325-486-6952 or Katie Plum, director of the ASU Office of Sponsored Projects, at 325-942-2530.
