The 2016 conference was dedicated to the memory of Harriet Haynes, friend, colleague, and beloved member of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics of New York City (ATMNYC) family. Harriet was a vital part of the mathematics education community in our city, state, and nation for several decades.
Harriet loved children and teaching. She served as a teacher, mathematics staff developer, assistant principal, director of reimbursable funded programs, mathematics supervisor, and mentor to the NYC teaching fellows. She was a member and officer of professional education organizations such as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM), Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State (AMTNYS), Association of Teachers of Mathematics of New York City, and TODOS: Mathematics for All. Harriet was a founding member of the Benjamin Banneker Association of Mathematics Education, a president of ATMNYC, and a winner of the TODOS Iris Carl Leadership and Equity Award.
As a leader, she advocated for the improvement of mathematics education for all students and consequently helped improve and extend professional development for teachers at many levels.
Harriet leaves her loving memories to be cherished by her friends and colleagues who will smile when they think of her, and feel blessed to have been able to spend a portion of their lives with her.
Thank you to all of the people who made 2016 ATMNYC a success.
