"We have an innate desire to endlessly learn, grow, and develop. We want to become more than what we already are. Once we yield to this inclination for continuous and never-ending improvement, we lead a life of endless accomplishments and satisfaction." — Chuck Gallozzi
Teachers are endlessly learning, growing and developing the next generation and themselves. This webpage will be updated regularly with some of the many opportunities available for continued professional growth in the area of mathematics. For additional supports please check Instructional Resources.
- Free illustrations show Common Core Mathematical Practices in action
Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards is a project of the Education Development Center to promote teacher learning about the mathematical practices, which are part of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. Educators may browse a library of illustrations for all of the practices, each of which includes a mathematics task, student dialogue, teacher reflection questions, mathematical overview, and student materials.
- Colorado Council of Teachers of Mathematics
The Colorado Council of Teachers of Mathematics in conjunction with CDE provides regional workshops through the school year to support professional learning around the Colorado Academic Standards.
- Annenburg Foundation
The Annenburg Foundation has a website for educator professional development with great workshops and courses for mathematics teachers. The courses are free but for a fee graduate credit is available from Colorado State University.
