Yes….it was those brightly colored conference bags that piqued my interest! At my first NCTM Annual Conference, I saw many people with these bags, so I started asking, "What is NCSM? How can I get involved?" As a rookie mathematics resource teacher the following year, I was able to attend a NCSM Conference, I received my own brightly colored bag, and was amazed by the amount of professional learning that I gained.
