Professional Development for Teachers

Teachers engaged in professional development activities

OCEMS works collaboratively with districts, schools, teachers, and families to support children in learning mathematics and science in child-centered and inquiry-based ways. Dr. Koestler’s work is focused on equitable and just teaching practices and can be based on the needs of a particular community.

Some recent projects Dr. Koestler has organized include a classroom inquiry group that supported mathematics and science teachers to develop action research projects to study their teaching practices; a district-wide professional development project on Cognitively Guided Instruction and Number Talks, and a Parent Book Group using the humorous, but informative book written by Marilyn Burns called Math: Facing an American Phobia. Dr. Koestler has also worked with colleagues to support a Math Teachers' Circle in Southeast Ohio.
