New Events

  1. In the inaugural year of the Marilyn Zweng First Year Teacher Grant, we awarded 15 grants of $200 - $250 to qualifying teachers. Read about the awardees and how this grant will benefit Iowa students.

  2. Interested in serving Iowa educators? The ICTM Governance Committee is composing a slate of candidates for the 2021 ICTM Executive Board Election. We are seeking nominations for four positions. Self nominations are encouraged!

  3. For 31 years, the purpose of the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program is to enable outstanding STEM teachers to bring their school and classroom expertise to the national level and to expand their knowledge of the national dialogue about education. Fellows spend eleven months working in a Federal agency or in a Congressional office. Consider applying for this prestigious program!

  4. ICTM is committed to providing connections, resources, and professional learning opportunities. Look for updates on our in-person fall 2022 conference "Building Connections: Math + More" which includes an online spring 2022 kick-off event.

  1. Plan ahead! Check out all of our grants and watch the NCTM & ICTM Grant Writing video that highlights ways to use grant money. Grants include support for conferences, curriculum development, extra-curricular events, and advanced tuition. 

  2. Interested in updating your statistics and data science knowledge and resources? Check out the on-demand Amplifying Statistics and Data Science in Classrooms (grades 6-12) professional development series.  

  3. Did you let your ICTM membership lapse?  Now is a great time to rejoin. It's also a great time to talk to your colleagues about joining ICTM. Remember, we offer individual memberships but also institutional memberships for elementary schools.

Do you have ideas for future newsletter, professional development activities, or website and social media posts? We'd love to hear from you; contact us at one of our email addresses.
