Math: Professional Development Opportunity for Occasional Teachers

The Waterloo Region Occasional Teachers’ Local, in collaboration with the Waterloo Region District School Board is pleased to present “Math: Professional Development Opportunity for Occasional Teachers”, a workshop based on current WRDSB Math initiatives.

  • Creating a math community
  • How do I plan for instruction in math?
  • Board and Ministry resources that support math instruction

This workshop is designed to prepare Occasional Teachers when working as a classroom teacher. Similar information is presented to those that have participated in the NTIP program. Please consider this when registering.
