I’m super excited to announce my upcoming Grassroots Workshops event being held on Friday, December 8 *and* Saturday, December 9. It’s the first time that I get to spend TWO FULL DAYS sharing math teaching, math learning, and math awesomeness with teachers.

So, if you teach mathematics (grades 6-12), please-please consider signing up! Registration does not open until October 16, but I know requests for funds can take time, and you’d want to ask before your school’s budget goes to curriculum *X* and supplies *Y* that may end up collecting dust in storage land!

Even if you live in Brussels or Shanghai, you should still try to make it because Disneyland is less than 3 miles away from the hotel. Yup! So, bring your whole family and make a vacation out of it. :)

I’m still in the classroom full-time, and this year I’m teaching Math 7, Math 8, and Coding. I feel your pain. Yes, we work too hard for too many long hours. Yes, we grade papers while we scoop dinner onto our face. We have the most neglected bladders of all humankind. We lie sleepless at night because we want to find a better way to explain concept *A* to Johnny and build math confidence in Mary. And I share your joy. If teaching mathematics is not a joyful profession for you, then maybe we can talk about that. We *need* to talk about that. Our failure is not here to shame us, it’s there to remind us to seek smarter and kinder ways to operate.

I’m truly hoping that you’ll come away from the two days inspired and motivated to make your classroom the best that it can be for all the math learners in your care.

This is an incredible opportunity for me, and I’d be honored to share the learning with you.

How exciting! We are still waiting to see if we can get to CMC this year. It’s looking grim :(

Do we know how much this will cost? I signed up for info and checked around, but just wondering to start the ball moving. Thanks Fawn.

Hi Shannon. The 2-day workshop is $435. But if you click here, you’ll get a discount code and be able to register early. Thank you for your interest!
