Christi McWaters, a teacher at East Aiken School of the Arts, is an inspiration in her 1st grade classroom and to colleagues across our state. She treats her 1st graders as mini mathematicians and they perform as problem-solvers. On any given day in her classroom, you can find creative problem-solvers at work with hands-on materials. It is the norm to see her students building with various materials in STEAM projects. She partners with local university professors and students in collaborative video pen pals utilizing Flip. She has coordinated her school's inaugural “Math Rocks” Day for school-wide interactive measurement activities and featuring a Math Magician with funding through a 2023 SCCTM classroom grant. Ms. McWaters also leads her district’s Aiken County Council of Teachers of Mathematics as an officer. She has presented multiple sessions for the annual SCCTM Conference.
