The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has been honored to have a variety of presidents who come from diverse backgrounds, geographic locations, and occupations. In an IGNITE session, seven past presidents will share their passion for teaching and learning mathematics. Each president gets 5 minutes to discuss with you what ignites their passion, using twenty slides that advance automatically every fifteen seconds, whether they are ready or not. Come ready to ignite your enthusiasm for teaching and learning mathematics as they quickly share theirs!

Diane Briars, Gail Burrill, Shirley Frye, Linda Gojak, Matthew Larson, J. Michael Shaughnessy, and Cathy Seeley
