2021 SCCTM Fall Conference

Special Agents of Δ Academy

 November 11 - 12, 2021

Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center

in Columbia, South Carolina


The idea of “change” within the context of the 2021 SCCTM Annual Conference and Business Meeting in Columbia, SC, addresses multiple ideas because, if nothing else, COVID-19 has forced us all to make changes. In addition to the idea that the entirety of the field of education has had to make significant change, we’d like to use components of the key recommendations from NCTM’s Catalyzing Change: Initiating Critical Conversations as a guide for the conference theme. Deepening understanding as learners of mathematics and as teachers.

2021 Conference Program

2021 KeyNote Speakers 

Dr. George Roy is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of South Carolina. He received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Rollins College, his Masters of Education in Mathematics Education from Lockheed Martin/University of Central Florida (UCF) Academy for Mathematics and Science. He went on to receive his Ph.D. from UCF where his doctoral research focused on preservice teachers’ development of mathematical content knowledge. Dr. Roy is a Keynote speaker during this year’s annual conference because of his role as an author on the NCTM publication, Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics: Initiating Critical Conversations.

Dr. Brandie Waid is an independent math coach/consultant who uses her life experiences in her work with districts, schools, universities, and educators to support the use of teaching practices that honor each student as an individual. She was featured during a NCTM February 2021 webinar discussing identity in the mathematics classroom which is “…largely influenced by queer pedagogy, methods of re-humanizing mathematics, and essential teacher competencies…” (visit her website at www.thequeermathematicsteacher.com for more information). Dr. Waid’s focus on identity in an era of change is exactly the emphasis we need for our theme this year.

Glenna Tabor is an innovative mathematics educator and motivational speaker. She has been a teacher, leader, and consultant and has developed a classroom framework for small-group mathematics teaching. As her website states, “Glenna sees her mission as being an agent of positive change” (visit her website at https://glennatabor.com/ for more information). Since our SCCTM conference theme centers on the idea of change, Glenna is a natural fit.

Dr. Margaret Gilmore is the Superintendent of Allendale County School District. Originally serving as Allendale County’s transformation coach, placed by the state in 2017, Dr. Gilmore assumed the role of Interim Superintendent in 2018. She has a degree in elementary and special education as well as a Master’s in Education from Arkansas State University. Dr. Gilmore received her doctorate in educational leadership and policy from the University of Memphis. Dr. Gilmore was recently identified by the SC Athletic Administrators Association as Superintendent of the Year and has been said to “really fire up” those she speaks to and leads. We are excited that Dr. Gilmore has agreed to be our final keynote speaker for the 2021 annual conference
