Texas Mathematics Teacher Spring/Summer 2018 - 4

Letter from the President
Dear TCTM Colleagues,
TCTM leadership has worked hard this past
year to elevate the level of communication
with	members.	Each	month,	an	eBlast	
newsletter	is	sent	by	the	president	via	
email	to	current	members.	If	you	have	not	
received this email, be sure to check your spam/junk folder or you
might	verify	that	your	membership	is	current.	The	email	is	sent	
from	president@txmathteachers.org,	so	be	sure	to	add	this	to	your	
"safe	senders"	list.	In	addition,	TCTM	has	a	FaceBook	page	and	
Twitter	account	(@txmathteachers),	so	be	sure	to	"Like"	our	page	
and	"Follow"	our	tweets!	This	will	provide	the	most	up	to	date	
announcements,	alert	to	special	opportunities,	and	helpful	resources.	
The Regional Directors will be contacting members in their region,
so	expect	to	receive	an	email	from	them	as	well.	You	can	find	your	
regional director information on the inside cover of this issue of
TMT.	They	may	host	events	in	your	area,	so	please	contact	them	if	
you	feel	you	are	not	receiving	information.
In addition, current members have received login information to
access the current issue and all archived issues, available on the
TCTM	web	site.	It	will	be	important	to	keep	your	membership	
current so that you do not miss a single issue!

If you have colleagues who are not members, encourage
them to join so that they can enjoy the wonderful resources
included	in	each	and	every	issue	of	TMT.	If	you	are	
experiencing	any	issues	with	login	information,	please	
contact	the	membership	director.
Be sure to make your plans now for participation in
CAMT 2018, which will be held in Houston, and encourage
a	team	from	your	school	to	attend.	TCTM	hosts	a	special	
reception just for members and we have a booth in the
exhibit	area.	This	is	where	you	can	interact	directly	with	your	
TCTM leadership, so we hope to see you there! More details
about events at CAMT will be sent via eBlasts, posted on
Facebook,	and	tweeted	on	Twitter!
All my best for a great end of school year!

Sandi Cooper
President, 2016 - 2018
