MCTM CONNECT Update – Resources for New Teachers

CONNECT Session at the Spring Conference

Pre-service teachers and those in their first few years of teaching are invited to the CONNECT Session held during 7:00–9:00 PM on Thursday, April 28th, the evening before the MCTM Spring Conference in Duluth. Sponsored by the CONNECT Committee and the MinnMATYC Mentoring program, this event offers an orientation designed to maximize your conference experience, as well as an opportunity to network with other teachers with similar interests. In addition, participants are eligible for door prizes and can come away with free learning/teaching materials from our famous “Book Giveaway.” There is no charge for this event—that’s right, free food courtesy of MCTM! Reservations are not necessary but are greatly appreciated, especially if several people from a school or college are coming. If you know you’re coming, please contact Betty Johnston at


Summer Interns

Several colleges and universities who prepare mathematics teachers have junior and senior level students who would be willing to be interns for summer school classes in school districts. This will give them valuable teaching experience and will provide summer school teachers with additional help and resources. If your school is offering summer classes and would be interested in having one or more college students available as interns, please contact Ryota Matsuura at St. Olaf College ( He will try to arrange for available interns.


If you are a pre-service or beginning teacher, CONNECT to MCTM through us. If you’ve been around a while, help your new colleagues to get CONNECTed. For more information visit To be CONNECTed, contact Larry Luck at or at 763-784-0084.
