Messages from the President
One of the many great things about education is that every year brings a
new opportunity. Unlike in most other professions, our professional
year has a clear start and finish that brings with it both an
opportunity to reflect on and learn from the year that just ended, as
well as a chance to "wipe the slate clean" and reinvent ourselves as
April 2020 will be
a significant year in the history of the National Council of Teachers of
Mathematics. In Chicago, from April 1–4, NCTM will celebrate its centennial as
a council of teachers of mathematics at the NCTM Centennial Annual Meeting:
Looking Back and Moving Forward.
Over the past year, I have frequently referred to the importance of teachers of mathematics working collaboratively to improve teaching and learning. Over this same time period, many members have asked me what I think characterizes an effective professional learning community or collaborative team.
