Hello,

I am interesting in learning more about the New Common Core Math Standards workshops. In particular, what are the dates for Workshop #1 and Workshop #2 and where are they held.

I would like to view details about Workshop 1 and 7 and the locations.

I am interested in Workshops 1 and 2 for Grade 1. Are there any scheduled in March or April? Thanks!

I am very interested in your workshops. Can you let me know where when you are having any in March or April? Thank you!

Dear Dr. Nicki, I was at your workshop in Rochester NY yesterday. I absolutely loved it! You are an amazing speaker. I am a 23 year veteran of PreKindergarten and face grade reassignment , due to a possible cut to my program. That is one reaason I took the workshop. The information you shared will give me a leg up should I be reassigned. Thank You!
