Message from the VCTM President

On behalf of the board of the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics, welcome to our 2019
Conference at Longwood University! We are thrilled that you will join hundreds of your peers as you
attend sessions that will stretch you and your pedagogical practices as a mathematics educator. The
conference is structured around the themes of:

       Teaching with the new standards,
       Implementing equitable education,
       Experience the wonder, joy, and beauty of math, and
       Supporting the success of every student.

Consider joining us on Friday at the reception to honor our awardees of grants, awards, and scholarships
followed by an enlightening presentation by Dr. Karen Graham, our keynote speaker. Dr. Graham was
the chair of NCTM’s Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics Task force and Writing Team (2018)
and her research interests includes mathematics teacher development. She will provide an overview of
Catalyzing Change while also sharing the implications of teaching and learning across all grade levels.
These events will be followed by a reception where you may continue networking and exchanging ideas
while celebrating our time together.

Lastly, consider what you might do to support our organization. Update your VCTM profile with your
interests as well as share your interests with one of the board members. Likewise, let us know how we
might serve you better.

The topics offered over the next two days will hopefully lift your spirits and revive you as a mathematics
educator. This is a time to grow, share, laugh, make new acquaintances, and renew those you have met
over the years.

Enjoy and grow,

Pam Bailey

VCTM President

Longwood University President’s Welcome

To the attendees of the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Conference:

Welcome to Longwood University in the heart of Virginia. We are honored to host this annual
gathering of a statewide organization dedicated to stimulating an active interest in teaching
mathematics, promoting the improvement of mathematics education and providing leadership
in the professional development of teachers.

At this conference, you’ll engage in a rich exchange of ideas and serious discussions about how
to improve mathematics education, including a keynote address focused on the critical need for
meaningful change at the high-school level. I can think of no more fitting place for that type of
gathering than a university campus, where those exchanges are fostered daily.

It is also fitting that the theme of this year’s conference is For the Love of Students, We Teach
Mathematics. As one of the hundred-oldest colleges and universities in the country, Longwood
has a rich history of educating educators and fostering a love of teaching—and a distinctive
mission of creating citizen leaders. Your work as citizen leaders in your communities—ensuring
that each and every student has the mathematical experiences necessary for his or her future
personal and professional success—is to be lauded.

For those of you who are alumni, welcome home! For those who have never been here before,
I hope you will find time to wander through our historic campus and down the hill to
downtown Farmville, as charming a college town as you can find in any corner of the country.
It’s also rich in a remarkable history—the final days of the Civil War played out not far from
where the doors of Chichester Hall, our science building, stand today, while the student-led civil
rights movement began at what is today the Moton Museum, located at the southern tip of our
main campus triangle.

We applaud your dedication to professional development and your mission of improving
mathematics education. We are happy to have you on campus. I hope that your time here will
be productive and enlightening, and that you will return soon.

Sincerely,
W. Taylor Reveley IV

President
