MCTM Region 1 Director's Awardee
Peg Becker, Kalamazoo Central High School

Peg has been instrumental in helping the district integrate technology, particularly the TI Navigator, into the district's mathematics curriculum, and has become an avid proponent of technology. She has led several TI Navigator sessions and in the last year, she has seized the opportunity to receive fast-tracked training from Texas Instruments that has further increased her repertoire of presentations she leads throughout the mathematics community.

Those who know Peg, know her passion for music. She has used this personal interest extensively in a Mathematical Modeling course and has created several stand-alone activities that integrate technology and music. She strives to help students see interesting and relevant applications of mathematics.

Peg ponders, literally. She often builds on ideas and encourages conversation on developing ideas. She is a teacher that questions the status quo while being passionate about her students learning mathematics.
