GEPCTM serves mathematics teachers in the
GEPCTM itself generally holds a fall membership
kickoff party in September and a oneday annual conference for
mathematics teachers in October at the Transmountain Campus of El Paso Community College (9570
Gateway Blvd. North; next to Cohen Stadium). The conference is an excellent
opportunity for this area's teachers to get professional development
experiences, networking, and knowledge in one day without having to cover
classes or pay for airfare or lodging!

September 2012 update: GEPCTM President Craig Rhoads (crhoad@sisd.net) reports that this year, instead of holding a conference, we are expanding our reach by testing a feederpattern meet along with a UIL practice meet covering all papertested UIL events. If successful, next year we will offer to help high school math teams host their own feederpattern meets. We believe this strategy will strengthen the region's UIL competitiveness as well as serve the collective spirit and academic culture of the feederpattern campuses. Likewise, branching out as an operator of full UIL meets gives GEPCTM credibility in the community and provides practice competitions for events that do not usually compete before the final meet in our region. The combo UIL and feederpattern meet is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9th at Americas HS. Additionally, our regular slate of monthly math meets will include tests for Science and for Computer Science. The first meet of the year will be Sat. Sept 22^{nd} at Americas High School and the meet schedule for the rest of the year will be created that day in the coaches grading room during the Number Sense test. For more information, contact Francisco Nolasco at fnolas@sisd.net, 3732784 or 9372800.
