I have been involved in a number of efforts in K12 mathematics education, predominantly building on implementation efforts for the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM). These standards set forth a mathematically correct and coherent framework to support best teaching practices in K12 mathematics. I am a Content Leader for the Illustrative Mathematics Project, which aims to elaborate on the standards by providing exemplar tasks. My focus has been more on K8, and I have also been involved in efforts to illustrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice. In the summer of 2012, I worked with local school districts by running a professional development program on the CCSSM through the Lane ESD as well as by consulting on a program of the Center for Advanced Technology in Education at the University of Oregon. One interesting and seemingly successful feature of the professional development model was to have colearners from higher education  undergrad, grad students, and instructor from the math department  who could provide mathematical experience and perspective to complement the teachers' expertise. There are a number of plans to build on these efforts in the future. I plan to work with local districts, Lane ESD, and the University's School of Journalism and Communication to develop a resource site which is both accessible to novices and aggregates a number of highquality resources. The goal is to provide resources to allow teachers and others to gain a significant amount of familiarity on their own, so that professional development and other efforts can start to work at a deeper level. Stay tuned, but for now let me point to the following
