President's Message

February, 2021


Dear SCCTM members, sponsors, and friends,


I am truly honored to represent our South Carolina mathematics educators and math teaching supporters! In my work on the executive board of SCCTM over the past four years, I can say I have seen a great deal of inspirational activities during conferences, virtual collaboration/conversation, professional book studies and genuine interest in supporting our teachers in creating educational opportunities for our students.


While the past year has been overwhelming on so many levels, I am proud to be a member of such an amazing organization and to serve as the president of SCCTM. Regardless of the changes surrounding us or the highly referenced “new normal”, I believe SCCTM is one of the most well-connected and supportive educational groups in South Carolina. As we work together to navigate the many changes – political, educational, pandemic-al (I made that one up), societal, economic or any others you may think of – teaching and learning MUST continue.


I am proud to be part of an organization and team of leaders who is able to work together to ensure there are professional development options for teachers and for all who wish to grow professionally despite our inability to be together in person. Thank you to past president Marc Drews for his efforts over the last several months! I know the community joins me in expressing our appreciation for ensuring we have had great options for learning and collaboration! This is one first of many for SCCTM resulting in fantastic experiences for all involved! Thank you to all speakers, contributors, sponsors and participants - the future is bright for SCCTM!


While we are not yet out of the woods for this pandemic, I would like all of our SCCTM members, sponsors, and friends to know I appreciate your support and I look forward to all of the incredible opportunities ahead!


With highest regards for all you do,

Dr. Ryan Higgins

President, SCCTM
