Message from the NCSM President, John Staley 

Continuing the conversation-"How might we" make mathematics more meaningful, relevant, and accessible for ALL students? As you think of your role and the work you do to support mathematics teachers, take a moment to reflect on how you support teachers as they deal with eliminating deficit views of mathematics learning for children, family, and communities because of race, class, language, and culture. How do you see teachers' views playing out in the classes you visit and the conversations you have with others? Who else needs to join your conversations and help influence the thinking and work that you are doing?  

What opportunities exist to move our work further in this area? How might NCSM better support you in this work? Take a moment and share your thoughts: post http://tinyurl.com/NCSM-MRA, Twitter- #NCSM-MRA, or by email [email protected], include NCSM-MRA in the subject line.
Have a great summer.
