Topic: How Are We Teaching Your Child? Co-taught math program
Speakers: Teaching team from Luther Burbank Middle School 

Last year the district embarked on new professional development to assist students in finding success in mathematics while supporting students to appreciate and admire the beauty and power of mathematics and the tools it offers.  At the same time, we want teachers (both regular and special education) to enjoy teaching meaningful mathematics in meaningful ways to all children, without exception. We want them to demonstrate their fidelity to two key objects:

(a) children—all of them realize their potential, and

(b) mathematics with rigor
