Professor Fabiana Cardetti has been awarded an NSF grant to support the project *Developing Mathematics Teacher Leaders for Connecticut Alliance School Districts* with Co-PIs Megan Staples and Gladis Kersaint from the Neag School of Education and in partnership with the State Department of Education. The project aims to serve the national interest by developing highly effective mathematics teacher leaders who can address the mathematics-specific instructional needs of high-needs and low-performing school districts in Connecticut. The 5-year mathematics leadership development program is bolstered by, and advances, the growing body of research on teacher leadership and its impact on supporting equitable outcomes in mathematics education.
