Illustrative Mathematics Announces Newest Cohort of Educators Accepted into the IM Certified Facilitator Training Program - Tech Learning

Tucson, AZ – July 16, 2018— Illustrative Mathematics(IM) today announced its newest cohort for the IM Certification™ program, which trains qualified mathematics educators to deliver scalable, high-quality, author-developed professional learning experiences that support adoptions of the acclaimed Illustrative Mathematics 6–8 Mathcurriculum.

IM Certified Facilitators undergo a rigorous, application-based qualification process and attend intensive, ongoing trainings to gain mastery in delivering impactful professional learning experiences from the authors of the curriculum. Acceptance is reserved for educators with considerable expertise in teaching or coaching mathematics, active interest in leading high-quality PD, and the ability to commit to an ongoing, intensive course of study.

“Our IM Certified facilitators continue to represent the very best in mathematics coaching and professional learning. Beyond having the skills to support exceptional professional growth in educators, our certified facilitators represent the level of quality and expertise that our customers have come to expect from IM,” says Illustrative Mathematics CEO Lisa O’Masta.

IM’s comprehensive suite of professional learning services are developed and continuously refined by the authors of the curriculum to ensure deep alignment to the materials, and all IM services are delivered by IM Certified Facilitators. Upon program completion, facilitators will deliver professional learning that supports the organization’s middle school curriculum, Illustrative Mathematics 6–8 Math, enabling them to work with teachers and coaches implementing the materials.

"Going through the IM Certification process has definitely helped me grow my skills and confidence as a facilitator,” says Belinda Thompson, a current IM Certified Facilitator. “To know that the content I'm delivering is mathematically and pedagogically sound, and that I'll get to train others to use it while also growing and learning along with the participants, makes traveling to different places and meeting new faces a fantastic experience."


You can view a full list of facilitators, as well as information on our IM Certificationprogram.
