MfA Summer Think 2017
I’m excited to be participating in the inaugural Summer Think, a teacher-led summer conference hosted by Math for America.
The theme of the conference is Big Ideas In and Out of the Classroom. I’ll be delivering the opening keynote, Connecting Big Ideas In and Out of the Classroom, and will also be running a related workshop later in the conference. I’m honored to be providing the opening remarks for this event, which is undoubtedly the first of many.
The Summer Think has been organized and orchestrated by teachers from Math for America’s various fellowship programs, and features two dozen sessions proposed and facilitated by teachers. In addition to the underlying support offered through their fellowship programs, MfA has provided organizational support for the conference.
Teacher-led, teacher-driven professional development lies at the heart of Math for America’s programs, and the fact that over 50 teachers are participating in a conference less than two weeks after the end of the school year speaks to the impact it has on MfA’s teachers.
