RIVERDALE -- Good Foundations Academy teacher Sue Goers has been awarded the Raytheon Math Hero award for teaching middle school math.
Goers, selected from more than 200 nominations, will receive a $2,500, as will Good Foundations. The charter school plans to use the funds to purchase laptop computers for use by fifth- and sixth-grade students and teachers, said headmaster Peggy Downs.
Students struggling with math will use the laptops and will work in small groups, using online math apps to strengthen their basic skills. Raytheon is a technology and homeland security company.
