2019 CPM Teacher Conference!

We host this conference as an investment in the most important educational resource that America has—the classroom teacher. We are honored that you chose to join us. It is our hope that what you saw, heard, did, and learned at this conference will leave you motivated and inspired to continue the pursuit of mathematics with your students and colleagues.

We extend a thank you to those who were willing to present their ideas and strategies with their colleagues. We hope you enjoyed your time in the beautiful San Francisco area and left energized to continue empowering your students. We hope to see you next year!

Consider speaking at the 2020 CPM Teacher Conference: February 22 & 23, 2020
Share your experience and the lessons you have learned teaching students how to reason, solve problems, and communicate mathematically.

Speaker proposals are due by May 15, 2019.

As lead speaker, you will receive one complimentary registration and a conference grant to help defray the cost of the conference. The amount of the conference grant has yet to be determined.

I have been teaching math for 17 years. I began my teaching career in Richardson, TX and then moved to Los Angeles with my son, husband, and our two precious pooches. I have taught in three disctinct environments: a large public high school, a mostly independent study charter school, and a K-12 public charter school.
In these three types of schools, I taught everything from Pre Algebra to Pre Calculus and have coached teachers starting in 5th grade math through High School.
I love to explore ways to demystify math for students and make it accessible for all learners. I place a strong emphasis on building math vocabulary and connections between topics to ensure that students have a strong foundation to pursue higher level math. CPM allows me to challenge my students thinking and have them, alongside their groups, to develop their own conceptual understanding of mathematical puzzles before we apply concrete processes to solidify their foundations.
