PART 2: How Might Our Beliefs Impact Our Identity as Mathematics Educators?

Tue, Aug 13, 2019 · 9:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

As we engage in professional development with teachers mathematics teaching & learning, we have found that asking three questions is a crucial place to begin the work with any group. As you think about the teaching and learning teams you are a part of, consider these three questions:

Who are we?
Why are we doing this?
Why are we doing this, this way?

Further, NCTM’s Guiding Principles for School Mathematics states that, “Professionalism [exists] in an excellent mathematics program, [when] educators hold themselves and their colleagues accountable for the mathematical success of every student and for their personal and collective professional growth toward effective teaching and learning of mathematics” (Principles to Actions p.5 - NCTM 2014). How are we holding our collective accountability in shared professional growth?
Join us for the continuation of our June discussion and engagement around job-embedded professional learning across PreK-G12 mathematics!

Please note: this is Part 2, consider reviewing our conversation from June 18 as front-loading for our August chat.

I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts PART 2: How Might Our Beliefs Impact Our Identity as Mathematics Educators?
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
