AMTEA (Alabama)

The AMTE 2020-2024 Long-Term Goals shared during the Annual Conference come at a good time for AMTEA. During our virtual meeting in February, AMTEA looked at national AMTE priorities and state goals. Members gave great feedback on our declared goals with a view toward building consensus, setting priorities, creating working groups, and determining short- and long-term activities as evidence of making progress with the association’s goals. There will be an internal investment within the group to get to know each other better over the next few years by sharing personal work interests, strengths, and talents connected to AMTEA goals, which will help us develop positive working relationships with each other. We discussed organizational structures like the creation of an annual calendar and a public description of our membership to use in recruitment activities as we reach out in the state to other Mathematics Teacher Educator stakeholders. AMTE actions in support of the long-range goals, member conference sessions, Community Circles, and Listening and Lecture sessions will all contribute to a stronger AMTEA as we debrief and share learning from the conference when we next meet.

AMTEC (Connecticut) 

Greetings AMTE community! The Associated Mathematics Teacher Educators in Connecticut (AMTEC) continued our virtual pursuits this winter, organizing a trio of sessions as we headed back to school for the spring term. We paralleled our August sessions with a focus on designing lessons to increase engagement, tools to support mathematics problem solving, and how to best support student-cooperating teacher work during the pandemic, particularly when so many have to be online. We are planning our business meeting for this spring–March 19–a virtual event. Members who attended the AMTE 25th Annual (Virtual) Conference left inspired and re-committed to creating a strong community among our Connecticut mathematics teacher educators, even when we are physically apart. Questions and inquiries can be sent to

WI-AMTE (Wisconsin) 

Join WI-AMTE and WMC for an in-depth discussion of the text High School Mathematics Lessons to Explore, Understand, and Respond to Social Justice. Click here to sign up. In our book study, we will explore the guiding theory and practical lessons in the book and share our experiences as we implement these lessons with students. We know that this year is particularly challenging, and we welcome all participants at whatever level you can engage (from reading a chapter when you can to implementing lessons and sharing the outcomes).

This book study is designed for all stakeholders including Teachers, Coaches, Administrators, and Math Instructors at the University and College level. Teachers can sign up as individuals or as faculty groups from their schools.

The discussion will be held virtually over four weeks in March: Wednesday, March 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st from 7 pm-8 pm (CST).

The cost to participate in the book study is $5 and undergraduate students can register for free. You can purchase the book from Corwin or NCTM.
