Perth Amboy to host open house for innovative math program

PERTH AMBOY — A community open house showcasing an new approach to middle school math education will be held 6 p.m. Thursday at William C. McGinnis Middle School, 271 State St.

Myrna Garcia, McGinnis School principal, sought solutions to improve students’ results in her school. She brought back information about the Teach to One Math program for teachers to review. The program was launched at the McGinnis School in September.

Math teacher Marie Bermudez, who has taught at the school for 15 years, led implementation of the program as mathematics instructional leader.

The Teach to One model integrates instructor-led, small-group collaboration, computer-based and independent study within a single learning environment to give each student a targeted, personalized learning experience.
