Whitnall High School Math teacher Aaron Bieniek is the only representative from Wisconsin chosen for the 2014 LearnZillion Dream Team, a group of 200 teachers heading to New Orleans for TeachFest, a unique professional development event from June 4-7.

In New Orleans, the Dream Team will kick off a rigorous summer-long collaboration to create high-quality formative assessment tools and resources that will support teachers implementing the Common Core across the United States. Following TeachFest, Dream Team members like Bieniek will return to their respective districts and continue to work in facilitated online professional learning communities.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to engage in a national process centered around how students learn mathematics, and see this as a huge opportunity to scale the district’s impact on student learning,” Bieniek said.  “We can always improve what we do, and I’m honored to be part of such a unique team of teachers.”

More than 4,000 people applied for a 2014 Dream Team spot. Selected for their content knowledge, grit and humility, these impressive Math and English Language Arts (ELA) teachers represent the best of district, charter and independent schools in 42 states and three countries (U.S., Singapore and Tunisia). Together, the 2014 Dream Team has more than 2,300 years of teaching experience, ranging from two to 42 years in the classroom.

LearnZillion is a curriculum and professional learning platform focused on knowledge of content and how to make it accessible to students.
