Volume 2, Issue 5 May, 2009


Many of us just returned from the NCSM and NCTM conferences. TODOS was well represented. We held our annual meeting on Wednesday and our Salsa reception hosted by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on Thursday was THE social event of the conference.

Thanks to ALL TODOS members who presented, and a big thanks to Carol Edwards and the speakers in the TODOS strand. A great big "THANK YOU" also goes to all our members who worked the TODOS booth at NCTM.
