Heidi Soares – SUM 2017: Leading Together

SUM 2017: Leading Together was a conference put on October 23-24 in Saskatoon by the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society.  It focused on teacher preparedness and providing the leadership necessary for making math work for all students, as set forth by the Keynote speaker Steve Leinwand.  He focuses on high-quality instruction and being an advocate for high-ceiling math programs.  I also had the opportunity to present on some of the professional growth I’ve been working on and share my ideas about the benefits of “Sketchnoting” in the math classroom.  This conference was a great opportunity to make connections with other math teachers from around the province and share ideas and resources.
