Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Maine

Our rules here are simple: Keep it professional and respectful. Take a moment to read through others' comments. Use the reply option if you have a question or comment on someone else's post. We can make this an interactive space - an ongoing conversation - and get the most out of our learning together. Following is the schedule for our Book Study this year. It will end prior to our Virtual Spring Conference March 13th, where we hope to celebrate our learning together.
