CS PD Week

NM Math Educators,

A reminder that Bootstrapworld.org, an organization that has been monumental in leveraging programming and code to support explicit mathematics instruction, is visiting NM June 4th through the 6th.  This training is part of the greater CS PD Week that CSTANM is hosting and is tied to National efforts that emphasize the same outcomes and skills.  Those interested in NCTM National’s policy toward CS infusion into mathematics pedagogy should review this Position Paper.

The NMCTM would like to remind folks that Bootstrapworld.org visited us at last year’s Soar to Greater Heights Annual STEM Symposium Conference that NMSTA, NMCTM, and CSTANM co-hosted, and is now returning to do more work with NM educators this summer!  This session is invaluable and we are encouraged by the numbers of folks signed up already.  For those who missed this session, please email president@nmctm.org for more information on how to get involved in teaching math with CS instead of just passing students and sending them to alternative courses.  We strongly endorse this training, and are proud to be its formal sponsors, and look forward to meeting and working with constituents in ABQ at the training.

If somehow the CS PD Week missed you, please visit CS PD Week, and we strongly encourage you to reach out to our partners at CSTANM.  We are proud at NMCTM to sponsor this training and want to know from you, our membership, how we can continue to support you in leadership efforts across the State!  Reach out to us!

NM PED STEM Symposium

NM STEM Educators,

A reminder that this Friday is the NM PED’s annual STEM Symposium.   We look forward to seeing educators at the Symposium.  A reminder and follow up to earlier emails that:

1) The NMCTM has multiple presenters at the session – please visit and ask questions or get involved.

2) Our Annual Meeting and elections have been formally moved to the Symposium for this school-year, and potentially others, so see everyone at the pull out!

Please bring ideas about policy, curriculum support, etc., to the Annual Meeting.  If you have not done so yet, please renew your dues here:  https://nmctm.org/register/

Also, the NMCTM is proud to announce the formation of the Dr. Kinzer Math Teacher Professional Development Endowment this year.  By investing in the future of teacher PD, the NMCTM continues to position itself in ways that can directly benefit educators for trainings, workshops, webinars, travel reimbursement, study sessions, and more.  Interested parties should email treasurer@nmctm.org.  The endowment was created with the assistance and stewardship of the private fiduciary Longview Asset Management, located in Santa Fe.

Thanks again for finishing a great year of teaching and service!  See everyone soon.
