Advocate * Mentor * Learn

Breathe.. You Have a Community

Hello Arizona Mathematics Leaders,

We have all made great progress in areas we could not imagine one year ago. So let's capitalize on this learning along with current research to change mathematics teaching and learning in Arizona.

Plan to join us for our third Lead and Learn, "Introducing The AML Bookshelf". Keep up with current research influencing mathematics teaching and learning by joining us in previewing what can be learned from some recently published and highly influential books. Then continue the learning with an optional opportunity to meet regularly with fellow Arizona Math Leaders to support further study and implementation of the great ideas that are uncovered. Details and registration link are provided below.

Through all this it is good to remember that Arizona Mathematics Leaders is your community. We need to be able to lean on and learn from each other as we Advocate for safety, and equity; Mentor new and experienced teachers working in new leaning environments and; Learn together to be the leaders others need us to be.

I sincerely look forward to "seeing" you on December 8 at our third community event.

Have a great day and a safe holiday season.


Jane Gaun

AML President 2018-2020
