The first of two summer training sessions begins at Eastern Kentucky University on June 18th. We’re looking forward to meeting the teachers that will make up the second cohort of mathematics coaches, and it will be great to see those coaches returning to the program for a second year.  We are also looking forward to meeting the administrators that will be joining us for one day of training.
