COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Jennifer G. Whitfield, an instructional assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M University, has been selected by The Texas A&M University System as a 2013-2014 member of the Chancellor's Academy of Teacher Educators honoring individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of teacher education across the Texas A&M System.

Whitfield, who earned her master of science degree in mathematics from Texas A&M in 2000 and currently is working toward her doctorate in mathematics education, joined the Texas A&M faculty in 2001. She has served since 2011 as director of the Texas A&M STEM Teacher Preparation Academy and as program manager for aggieTEACH, a national peer-reviewed teacher recruitment and preparation model that has helped position Texas A&M as the state leader in university-trained mathematics and science teacher production for the past seven years.

"Professor Whitfield's record certainly speaks for itself, in terms of dedication to and impact on the university's teacher preparation program," said Dr. H. Joseph Newton, dean of the Texas A&M College of Science. "She has made substantial contributions to the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers through her scholarship, teaching and service at the national, state and local levels. In her current activities, she continues to provide experiences that create the high-quality secondary mathematics teachers for whom Texas A&M University is known."
