    Resiliency, Creativity, and Adaptations: Telling our Stories

    April 1, 2020 7:00 p.m. EDT |  Speaker: Robert Q. Berry III

    Webinar description:The current context has demonstrated the importance of building resilience in a rapidly changing landscape. While many of us face challenges, such as quickly adapting the ways we teach, adapting work responsibilities with family responsibilities, and adapting approaches to engage in self-care and connecting to others. We are incredibly resilient, and the current context reminds us that we are preparing learners for an unpredictable world requiring informed decision making, creative problem solving, and adaptability. This webinar focuses on stories of resiliency, creativity, and adaptations.

    Vulnerability as Self-Care

    April 3, 2020 7:00 p.m. EDT |  Speaker: Laila Nur

    Webinar description: Not much can prepare us for the emotional strength and investment that is required to be an educator. We give so much. The emotional toll of teaching can cause us to suppress “negative” emotions as a defense mechanism, but this does more harm than good. This session will work to create a safe space for us to process, reframe, and learn how to share those emotions as an act of vulnerability for our own self-care.

    From Knowns to Unknowns: A journey into Teaching Mathematics

    April 6, 2020 7:00 p.m. EDT |  Speaker: Trena Wilkerson

    Webinar description: For me teaching has been a journey encountering things I knew would happen and then at times, things that were unknown. Knowns may be our students, our goals, or our purpose in teaching. Unknowns might include changes in curriculum and assessment, life experiences, and global events such as we are experiencing now. All these happenings shape us as individuals, as a learning community, and as teachers of mathematics. Join me in exploring this journey and ways NCTM can connect, support, and grow our mathematics teaching and learning community in the knowns and in the unknowns.
