Good morning colleagues,
We are excited for the CSU MTE-P members to convene in January once again so we may continue the conversations and collective research to improve our secondary math teacher preparation.
We will meet at the CSU Fullerton - Irvine campus on Wednesday January 27, 2016 from 10:00-5:00 pm. Ed Dickey, from the University of South Carolina, will be our special guest. He was an initial member of the Recruitment RAC, and now is one of the leaders of the STRIDES (retention) RAC.
An agenda is below, followed by travel tips. Apply your MSTI funds to attend this gathering with your team members.
See you soon!
