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.

Yes, the picture that appears on my Google accounts is that of a "Cow Pi". Enjoy!

I am in my 30th year of teaching math in Petaluma, CA, and it's my 25th year using CPM instructional materials. I started at the junior high/middle school level for the first 11 years, and I have been picking on the bigger kids ever since. My current teaching load includes 1 section of AP Calculus BC, 3 sections of Honors Math Analysis, and 1 section of Math 2 Workshop (an intervention class).

The last 12 years have seen our math department at Petaluma High grow closer, collaborating more and more each year, and continually improving both the access and the success rates for our students in math. We've tried somethings that didn't work and some that have, and we have learned from both. We strive to improve what we do each year in every class.

In my presentation, I will be sharing about what we do in math intervention: what we've tried, what worked, what didn't, what we've learned, what we're currently doing, and what we're looking at possibly changing for next year. Also we will discuss what boundaries or considerations may exist at your school, in your district, or in your state that affect what your intervention program can be.
