HEMS Seminars

leeandarthurherbst_0.png

We are very grateful for the continued guidance and support from Lee and Arthur Herbst.

The Herbst Family Foundation, created by Lee and Arthur Herbst, provides an endowment to CRR to provide Saturday workshops for elementary, middle, and high school teachers. These Herbst Enrichment Mathematics Seminars (HEMS) are taught by exemplary classroom teachers who present meaningful content and model excellent teaching strategies. Due to the generosity of Lee and Arthur Herbst, teachers from partnership schools/districts receive stipends for their participation.

PLEASE NOTE: Teachers from non-partner schools will incur a fee in order to attend workshops, and they will not receive a stipend for their attendance.

Fall 2020 Workshops:

There is nothing quite like the excited buzz of the classroom as students work through challenging mathematics together. Which begs the question: How can this be accomplished in an online setting? Together we will explore ways to build relationships, engage in meaningful group work, and gain comfortability with online tools to ensure students are provided the opportunity to collaborate in our virtual classrooms. Grounded in the practices of Complex Instruction, these skills can be applied in a virtual or physical classroom, to guide collaboration in all settings. This presentation is intended for all high school math teachers with specific examples of activities from Geometry and Algebra.

Presenter: Larissa Peru has been teaching at Desert View High School in the Sunnyside Unified School District since 2013. She has taught Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus AB/BC as well as coaching Academic Decathlon. She is a teacher leader for her site, a Desmos Fellow, a Raytheon Leaders in Education Award Winner, and a recent graduate of the UA Teachers in Industry Master’s Program. Larissa aspires to help educators in all stages of their journey create positive spaces where students feel empowered to learn math and appreciate the role it plays in every facet of their lives.

This is a two-part series focused on High School Mathematics.  $50 stipends will only be provided to the first 40 teachers from partner school districts who participate in both sessions. Please only register if you can attend both sessions, and sessions will be capped at 70 participants.  In addition to professional development certificates (9 hours), participants will receive the stipend due to the generosity of Lee and Arthur Herbst.
