News from the Southern 2 Region
Linda Griffith, Southern 2 Regional Director
After a busy summer of professional development opportunities in Southern Region 2, the 2014 school year has already begun. We are excited about the professional development opportunities that will be taking place in our region this fall.
First and foremost, one of three fall Leadership Seminars will be in Southern Region 2. This event will be held in Houston, Texas on November 19, 2014. The title for the seminars this fall is "It's TIME: Using Imperatives to Support and Motivate Leaders in Mathematics Education". These seminars will build upon the NCSM publication release in April 2014, "It's TIME: Themes and Imperatives for Mathematics Education". Please plan on taking advantage of this opportunity. This event will be held in conjunction with the NCTM Regional Conference that will take place in Houston on November 19-21, 2014. Register today!
Many of the Southern Region 2 states are also planning fall conferences for 2014. The Mississippi Council of Teachers of Mathematics is planning a meeting for September 19-20, 2014. The Tennessee Mathematics Teachers Association has announced their fall meeting will be held on September 26 and 27, 2014. The Louisiana Association of Teachers of Mathematics has a meeting planned in Shreveport on October 20-22. The Alabama Council of Teachers of Mathematics has announced the dates for their Fall Forum will be October 23 and 24. The Arkansas Council of Teachers of Mathematics is working on plans for the annual Arkansas Curriculum Conference in Little Rock, scheduled for November 6 and 7. The Arkansas Association of Mathematics Leaders will host a meeting in conjunction with the ACC conference on November 5 and 6.
Opportunities to continue to grow and learn professionally continue to abound in Southern Region 2. Our mathematics education leadership is dedicated and works tirelessly to provide resources for the mathematics education community.
