as the leadership opportunities bestowed upon her by
Jo Ann Wheeler. Janet worked alongside Nancy Trapp,
the namesake of TCTM's Leadership Award, through
collaborative efforts in TCTM, TASM, and CAMT, and is
honored to share in the celebration of her legacy.

"There are two versions of math in the lives of many
Americans: the strange and boring subject that they
encountered in classrooms and an interesting set of ideas
that is the math of the world, and is curiously different
and surprisingly engaging. Our task is to introduce
this second version to today's students, get them excited
about math, and prepare them for the future."
