I need registration for the California Mathematics Council 2019 Conference at Asilomar.
My school is located in an urban area. The school has an estimated enrollment of 400 students in grades TK-5, with fifteen classrooms. Additionally, we house a state Pre-K program. 92.5% of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch and 48% are English language learners. 46% of the students are Latino, 35% are African American, 10% are Asian, and 3% are Filipino.
The school has established a culture of continuous school improvement and has a team of teachers, parents, and administrators who are committed to creating the best possible learning environment for students.
Teachers meet weekly for a sixty minute period during the workday in their professional learning community to analyze student performance data, set goals, and share instructional strategies. These teacher teams follow a developed agenda and use protocols and defined roles to manage the meetings. These meetings are our district's cornerstone for building a professional learning community and improving student achievement.
This project will cover the registration fee and lodging so I can attend the California Mathematics Council North conference. This conference is a critical professional development event. Not only are there keynote speakers that give insight to current issues in mathematics education, but there are a plethora of breakout sessions that speak to practical instructional concerns and problems of practice.
As the Instructional Teacher Leader for my school, I work with a lot of teachers and students, and they depend upon me to stay abreast of the latest trends and innovative ideas in mathematics education.
I provide intervention support to our students who are most critically in need of support, so it is very important that I keep up my own professional learning to best be able to serve these students. The students at my school have a great need for support, and attending this conference will help me support their teachers in providing for them.
Additionally, I coach a mix of veteran and new teachers in Mathematics, so I need to keep my own learning current in order to help affect the greatest change in student learning.
