Who We Are


Since the Institute was founded in 1986, about 1000 educators from Long Island and New York City have participated in the program. Participants have reported that there was a positive change to their teaching style. They shared their innovative ideas, skills, and experiences with their peer teachers through meetings and in-service workshops in their school districts. The instructional strategies learned were incorporated into the mathematics curriculum and positively effected their classroom management. Teachers reported improved student attitude towards mathematics and an increase in content knowledge as measured by pre- and post- tests.

The program is funded by a grant from NYS and there is no cost to the participants. Sponsorship also comes from the State University of New York College at Old Westbury.

The following organizations give their support to the continuation of the Institute of Leadership Training for Teaching Mathematics and Technology:

– The Institute of MERIT
