NYSMTP Summer Conference
The NYSMTP summer conference brings together Master Teachers from around New York state for two days of professional learning and networking. The theme of this year’s conference is “Convergence”, and features presentations from Dr. C. Alex Young from NASA, mathematician Steven Strogatz from Cornell, and New York’s Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia.
I’ll be presenting Scratch Across the Math Curriculum with Dan Anderson, a Master Teacher from New York’s Central Region. Dan and I will be sharing our work bringing computer science into math class using the Scratch programming language. This is a continuation of the work I’ve been sharing at workshops and conferences across the country the past several years.
I’m proud to be a part of the NYS Master Teacher program through Math for America, the NYC-based organization that served as a model for the state program, and I’m grateful to MfA for their support in participating in events like the NYSMTP’s summer conference.
