TO: Joseph G. Rosenstein, Project Director
Leadership Program in Discrete Mathematics
FROM: 2000 Leadership Program Applicant and Principal
SUBJECT: In Support of Participant's Application

I understand that as a participant in the Leadership Program in Discrete Mathematics, I am expected to use institute materials and activities in my classroom(s), provide workshops on these materials and activities for my colleagues, and work to change my school's and district's curriculum to include these materials and activities. I also anticipate attending the four Saturday follow-up sessions during the subsequent school year and a one-week institute the following summer, and I expect to develop and present a workshop at one of the follow-up sessions in preparation for presenting similar workshops to my colleagues.
