NCSM Virtual Leadership Seminars 2022-2023

Ready to make a real difference in the teaching and learning of mathematics for each and every learner? Culturally relevant leadership is a way for all leaders to help all teachers lift their students up to create a more equitable world. 

To meet the vision of all students learning mathematics at high levels, leaders must take leadership actions that support culturally relevant mathematics instruction.

Join us virtually to:

  • EMPOWER students through culturally relevant tasks and instruction
  • DESIGN culturally relevant tasks and instruction
  • ADVOCATE culturally relevant tasks and instruction
  • MONITOR culturally relevant tasks and instruction

NCSM is offering two one-day virtual seminars to expand your professional learning network while working side by side using the wealth of materials provided to enhance your leadership.

In Seminar 1, you will set a vision for change in order to develop a strategic plan personalized to your vision for math instruction and coaching. Mathematics leaders will leave equipped to develop a shared vision for mathematics instruction and implement high-leverage teaching strategies.

In Seminar 2, you will develop a deeper understanding of coaching structures, provide feedback, and strategies for addressing unproductive beliefs, and have opportunities to practice your coaching skills. If you are a teacher leader, coach, administrator, or supervisor you won’t want to miss out on these professional learning seminars!

NOTE: Space is limited for the 2022-2023 NCSM Virtual Seminars. You may opt to register for one or both seminars as spaces are available. Registration information will be sent out via email blast. Visit this website for the most updated information.
