Congratulations, one or more of your math teachers has applied for the EMPowered program, a unique professional development program exclusively for fourth and fifth grade mathematics teachers.
Your support of their application(s) is an essential part of our review process. The program includes orientation, a six-day summer intensive (in-person), two additional units through coursework in LINC courses at Foothill College, and four follow-up sessions in the academic year. The EMPowered application is competitive for the 30 places for the program.
Please complete this online form for all of your teachers no later than April 30. This form's Web address is bit.ly/EMPowered2019principal
Briefly, applicants to EMPowered are interested in learning new pedagogical methods and educational technology skills for teaching and learning the most challenging pre-algebra, algebra, and transformational geometry concepts. We highly anticipate teachers will return to their schools with fresh ideas for improving their own teaching and improving your school’s mathematics professional learning community.
EMPowered is sponsored by the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College.
The EMPowered program meets May 18, 2019 and 7/12, 7/15 through 7/19 . The four follow-up sessions are typically on a Saturday in October, November, February, and March of the academic year. EMPowered participants meet at Foothill College and continue with follow-on sessions and PLCs in the academic year.
