Joyce Arter Named Outstanding Mathematics Educator

Joyce Arter is the recipient of the 2017 Maryland Outstanding Educator Award from the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Currently a teacher at Plum Point Middle School, Ms. Arter was honored for her work last year at Northern Middle School.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “Ms. Arter is not just an exemplary teacher; she is an exemplary teacher leader.”

Ms. Arter was recognized for both the academic growth of her students and her instructional expertise. Joe Sutton, Supervisor of Secondary Mathematics, said, “She has a natural talent for breaking content down into component parts, bringing a global perspective to what needs to be done to reach our students at the discrete level.”

In addition to her outstanding work with students, Ms. Arter enriches the mathematics community beyond her classroom through her collaboration with colleagues. Jaime Webster, Principal of Northern Middle School, said that Ms. Arter was a key leader who facilitated professional development activities. In addition, he said, “She has been an integral part of highly effective co-taught classes, providing additional supports and individualized instruction to special education students with diagnosed learning difficulties in math.”

Ms. Arter has continued her tradition of excellence in her new position at Plum Point Middle School. Kelley Adams, Principal, said, “She is amazing and all about helping kids. Her fresh perspective and positive attitude are already valuable assets to our school improvement team.”
