The Summit Deets
The Middle School Math Summit will be taking place July 25 - 27, 2022, with variety of trainings to choose from each day.
I don't know about you, but I prefer to leave my house as little as possible. With that being said, the Middle School Math Summit will take place online wherever you have internet access (sweatpants and ponytails encouraged!)
Is the Math Teacher Summit really free?
Yes! You can watch all the free session interviews with every speaker when they go live from July 25-27, 2022 at no cost. Each session is available for the day only.
Presentations will be about 20-30 minutes in length. The presentations will be available to view on that day only to encourage you to join us live and take action along with hundreds of other middle school Math teachers!
Does it include a Professional Development (PD) certificate?
There is an option available if you upgrade your ticket for you to get a PD certificate good for 15 hours. This would be a fantastic way to not only learn what you personally want to learn as you start prepping for the new school year, but also as documentation that you can add to your continuing education files!
Why the Middle School Math Summit is going to be awesome sauce
There are a lot of summits, trainings, and workshops out there. So what makes this one different?
First, this summit was created specifically for middle school Math teachers. This isn't general advice for any teacher out there. Every single presentation is tailored specifically for middle school Math teachers and what we need, making it a whole lot more impactful.
Second, The Middle School Math Summit is totes F-R-E-E!
The Middle School Math Summit is all about providing you with relevant professional development that you can implement on Day 1 of the school year.
Don't miss a beat.

I’m a coffee-drinking, dog loving, sometimes I comb my hair, middle school math teacher helping other math teachers inspire and engage students! When I first started my teaching career over 13 years ago, I was given a key to my classroom and was told "Good Luck." I had no support and no resources. Let's be real, the resources I did have were crap! I knew there had to be a better way for us middle school math teachers to feel successful in the classroom and teach with ease.
The Middle School Math Summit was born out of a need and desire to support middle school Math teachers with actual professional development and training specific to our needs. Sitting in PD that is not relevant to our subject area is such a waste of time and I am so not here for it.
When I'm not crunching numbers and solving equations in the Los Angeles sun, you can find me hanging out with my BFF (best furry friend) doggo Fred, lifting heavy weights in CrossFit, and re-watching (for the hundredth time!) episodes of Friends and Schitts Creek.
