Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!

In September, NYSAMS, the NYS Association of Mathematics Supervisors, will host the Seventh Annual Hall of Fame for Mathematics Educators in Albany, NY. The honorees are Dr. Gerald R. Rising and Bill Caroscio. Their brief biographies and previous awardees can be found at NYSAMS will host the 10th Annual Leadership Summit in September and have a panel discussing edTPA, moderated by Joanne Powers; Susan Brockley from the Office of Curriculum and Instruction, NYSED will address the attendees; Dana Morse will speak about TI technology and I will do a presentation about It's TIME and also feature the outstanding resources of NCSM.

It's TIME was released and distributed at the annual conference in New Orleans. It is an excellent resource for leaders to work towards a common goal of improving mathematics achievement for every student. If you missed the webinar on August 28, you can access it at NCSM Webinars.

The Fall NCSM regional conferences entitled "It's TIME: Using Imperatives to Support and Motivate Leaders in Mathematics Education" will be held in Indianapolis, IN, Richmond, VA and Houston, TX.
