Building on two (2) prior National Science Foundation-funded projects, the All Included in Mathematics New
Extensions (AIM-NEXT) professional learning program will develop and research the impact of an augmented
model for mathematics professional development (PD) on K-2 student learning through the addition of supports for
coaches and leaders to the existing PD model. The overarching purpose of the project is to strengthen and
examine the connections between PD and student learning in the context of supporting K-2 teachers. The research
questions ask about the mathematical knowledge and key efficacious, equity-focused practices coaches use in
their work with teachers, the extent to which they are used with integrity, and the extent to which they improve over
time. The postdoctoral research scholar will work the Project AIM-NEXT investigators, leading research and publshing efforts.
