New York Organization Holds Workshops To Keep Math Teachers Energized

Writing at the New York Times (3/29, Subscription Publication) "SchoolBook" blog, Yasmeen Khan profiles Gil Kessler, a "self-described math enthusiast" who "taught math in New York City schools for 30 years." Now retired, Kessler "conducts math workshops for fellow teachers as part of the New York Math Circle, a non-profit organization that holds courses for both teachers and students. ... Kessler led a four-session course this month for about 10 teachers who decided that, once a week, they would like to unwind at the end of their workdays by learning new geometry proofs and theorem applications."
