VMS Teacher Andy Gibbs Chosen to Produce GaDoe Parent Support Videos

As one of only four teachers in the state chosen for this team, he was in charge of developing videos to explain math standards and expectations to parents of students in grades 3 - 5.  Mr. Gibbs created the videos, helped recruit celebrities for cameos, and developed a support guide for parents to print out at home.   
 
Mr. Gibbs has served on several committees for the GaDOE since 2019: Teacher Working Committee for Mathematics Standard Review for the State of Georgia, Citizen Review Committee for K-12 Mathematics Standards review/revision process. He currently serves on the Teacher Advisory Council for State School Superintendent, and recently joined the GaDOE Academic Review Committee, the Resource Revision Team for 5th Grade and the GaDOE Mathematics and STEM/STEAM Team, to create interdisciplinary units aligned to Georgia’s newly adopted K-12 Mathematics Standards.
