Lyon County teacher Leigh Ann Summers has been selected by the Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM) as a Kentucky Math Teacher Leader. This group of passionate teachers were selected for the program after completing a rigorous application and interview process.

These select mathematics leaders were brought together by the KCM to collaborate with like-minded educators from across the Commonwealth of Kentucky to hone and expand their skills in leadership, mathematics content and pedagogy.

Summers received a bachelor’s of science degree in elementary education from Murray State University in 2003 as well as a master’s degree in elementary education in 2011. She has taught at Lyon County Elementary for 15 years in first, third and fifth grades as well as serving as the math interventionist.

She is currently the fifth grade math teacher and also coaches the elementary LEGO Robotics team. Math has always been her favorite subject to teach; she enjoys making math real for her students by incorporating real-world math into the classroom so they can see math is all around us.

The Kentucky Center for Mathematics is a leader in the evolution of mathematics teaching and learning across the state of Kentucky.
