Are you ready to DREAM?

ATOMIM is excited to announce our online book study, Becoming the Math Teacher You Wish You’d Had: Ideas and Strategies from Vibrant Classrooms by Tracy Zager. (For more information about the book and to order your copy, visit Stenhouse Publishers. We've done the research and Stenhouse, our local Portland Publisher, offers the most economical price. They are even offering an extra discount for those who are participating in the book study. You will receive that information after registering.)

Kickoff Dine and Discuss meetings will be held throughout the state during October (Calendar of Events and Registration). Tracy will speak to us about her book and our dreams as math teachers. Each week from November 2 through March 2, we will read a chapter and chat online via the ATOMIM Forum. Each chapter is power-packed with strategies to change our perceptions and our student’s perceptions about Math.

DREAMing (DRop Everything And Math), coined by Daphne Zager, Tracy’s daughter, is one way to change perceptions, but how do we empower teachers and students to engage in the DREAM?

Finally, on March 10th (Bangor) and 17th (Portland) we will celebrate our study together in person with Tracy as our keynote speaker at the ATOMIM spring conference. We will change, and as a result our students’ will change ... and that’s our dream.

Please be sure to nominate your favorite math teacher for our special recognition. All nominees are placed in a drawing for some special prizes at the end of the school year! Stayed tuned for this year's recipient.
