Winning the James Bryant Conant Award in 2009 has given me a new voice and an opportunity for change. My voice now receives a wider hearing, and because of this, I am recognized for my work with teaching the metric system for meaning and understanding. This talk will address my struggles for change and how this award has helped me succeed to make changes in the way teachers teach science and mathematics.
