Bridging the Past and Future for Georgia Mathematics
We hope you were able to join us for part one (the past) of the 2021 Georgia Mathematics Conference and look forward to seeing you for part two (the future) as we continue to work to provide our students with the best possible mathematics opportunities.
We are committed to providing Georgia mathematics teachers opportunities to hear nationally known speakers, to interact with other Georgia teachers, and to see demonstrations from and meet with our sponsors--all while being conscientious of teachers’ limited time for attending conferences. To accommodate teachers’ workloads and time constraints, we developed a two-part conference. During October, we hosted three amazing keynotes, made our On-Demand sessions available, and provided opportunities to meet with our sponsors. In February, we will hold a full day of concurrent sessions.
Highlights of part one of the conference, held October 14-16, 2021, included
- An informative keynote from Dr. Lya Snell, Georgia Department of Education Mathematics Program Manager,
- A thoughtful look at how we can build bridges for our students with Dr. Trena Wilkerson, NCTM President,
- Speed trivia with the creative Zach Veal, and
- An entertaining perspective on moving forward from Dr. Bernard Frost, Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction with Spartanburg School District 7.
The upcoming phase of our conference will be held Saturday, February 5, 2022. We recognize that there will be many sessions you wish to attend with limited time; therefore, we are recording all sessions and will make them available throughout February. Our featured speakers--Dr. Pamela Seda, Dr. Jean Lee, and our own Georgia’s own Billy Singletary-- are spaced out throughout the day to allow you to interact with all three. We also have a wide variety of sessions day to cater to the great diversity of our membership.
Even if you were unable to attend part one, a single conference registration provides you with access to all recordings of the keynote, On Demand, and live concurrent sessions. What an amazing deal!
We hope you can join us in February and take advantage of the many opportunities to learn with and from your colleagues.
