Kristi Hafftery is my guest blogger today. We have worked together for eleven years in the math department at our school. Next year she will begin teaching AP Stats with me! This will be the first opportunity we have had to work together teaching the same math course.
As Angie mentioned in an earlier blog our school’s AP stats program has grown from 54 students the first year to 146 students enrolled for year 2. This increase is not only a reflection of Angie’s hard work and dedication, but it provides me the opportunity to teach AP stats. I am excited for this challenge and aware that I have some work ahead of me. I attended the Pacific Northwest AP Institute for AP Statistics this summer, which was amazing. The instructor was knowledgeable about both the content of the course and the AP exam. I could not possibly summarize all the information, hints and statistics I learned, but I would recommend this institute. It was one of the best professional development programs that I have attended and a must for anyone planning on teaching an AP statistics course.
