Old Country Road Elementary School math teacher Meredith McGuire was named Elementary School Mathematics Teacher of the Year by the Nassau County Mathematics Teachers Association (NCMTA) for the talent and creativity she brings to her classroom.
The Hicksville teacher was recognized by her peers at the recently held NCMTA annual reception. Each year, NCMTA recognizes an elementary, middle school and high school mathematics teacher of the year.
The purpose of NCMTA is to promote an active interest in mathematics education by providing a forum for the interchange of ideas and by encouraging research to improve the teaching of mathematics at all levels, elementary through college.
Congratulations to McGuire on this wonderful honor.
