It’s a great opportunity to meet people visiting the booth and informing them about TODOS and why they should join TODOS. The TODOS Booth (#226) is located by the CMC Hub. Even if you are unable to volunteer, stop by the TODOS booth and pick up a TODOS refrigerator magnet and browse the resources.

The NCTM Regionals in Baltimore will be held November 30 – December 2. Similar to the regionals in New Orleans and Indianapolis, TODOS will have an exhibit booth at the Baltimore regionals. More information regarding booth volunteers will be in the November Enews. If you are willing to staff the booth for at least four hours, contact the editor to obtain a complimentary exhibitors’ registration that will allow you to volunteer and attend sessions during the conference.

MEAD Conference Call for Proposals

The University of Arizona CRR is requesting proposals for this year's Mathematics Educator Appreciation Day Conference (MEAD) on Saturday, January 21, 2023. MEAD is Arizona’s largest mathematics education event, offering FREE professional learning for mathematics educators in grades PreK-14. MEAD 2023 will be HYBRID, with both in-person and online components. Go to the MEAD website for conference details and the Call for Proposals.

Diversify the Teacher Workforce

All students benefit from having a racially and culturally diverse teacher workforce. As part of Ed Trust’s work to diversify the teacher workforce, they released a new brief, How States Can Use American Rescue Plan Funding and Federal Grants to Support Teacher Diversity. The brief includes promising practices that states are currently implementing by using federal funds to prepare, recruit, and retain more teachers of color.
