Ms. Metzenberg: Good morning. As we said yesterday, we are going
to get started a little earlier today. Can those of you back by the breakfast here
me? We're going to get started now.
It's a great pleasure to welcome you to the second day of the 1999 California State
University, Northridge conference on standards-based K-12 education. I know some
of you weren't here yesterday. My name is Aida Metzenberg. I'm one of the organizers
of this conference. I'd like to introduce my co-organizers so you know who do grab
in you have questions. They are Dr. David Klein, Professor of Mathematics here --
he is in the back -- David! Um -- Stan, why don't you turn around -- and I'll introduce
David in a moment -- and Dr. Stan Metzenberg, who is in the biology department here
at Cal State Northridge. And as soon as David walks in the door, I'll point him out.
I'm looking forward to another exciting and incredibly valuable day. I was saying
to my husband this morning that I don't think I've been at a conference -- I go to
science conferences usually -- being on the edge of my seat all day without getting
tired. And there's Dr. Klein at the back of the room. Those two are my co-organizers.
I would also like to acknowledge our sponsors, include Cal State Northridge's President's
Office, President Blenda Wilson. And our Office of Research and Sponsored Projects.
And it's so wonderful to have publishing representatives here who are also sponsors
Houghton-Mifflin, Harcourt Brace, McGraw-Hill, Prentice Hall/Scott Foresman. Thank
you so much.
