The 2022 California Mathematics Council Conference on December 3rd was everything that I had hoped it would be! Even though it was pouring down rain, I had a great session and room full of dedicated math teachers. I plan on returning next year because of the enthusiasm that I saw and heard in the room. I hope to see everyone in about a year!
