Dr. Sarah Bush Receives AMTE 2018 Early Career Award

The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) has awarded K-12 STEM Education Associate Professor Dr. Sarah Bush with the 2018 Early Career Award.

The purpose of the Early Career Award is to recognize a mathematics teacher educator who, while early in their career, has made distinguished contributions and shows exceptional potential for leadership in one or more areas of teaching, service, and/or scholarship.

During the past six years, Dr. Bush has been involved with more than $1.6 million externally-funded projects, four peer-reviewed published books, 40 peer-reviewed publications published or in press, 45 peer-reviewed and invited national or regional presentations, eight National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) leadership and committee appointments, most notably serving as the 2017 NCTM Annual Meeting and Exposition Program Chair, and two years serving in an administrative role as an associate dean.

Dr. Bush’s current research focuses include deepening student and teacher understanding of mathematics through transdisciplinary STEAM problem-based inquiry and mathematics, science, and STEAM teacher professional development effectiveness.
