My Students

Have you ever wanted to help someone but don't know how? Many parents feel that way as their children learn math in ways that are so different than the instruction they themselves received.

I am the academically gifted teacher at a small magnet elementary school.

I have been teaching for eleven years, and along with the knowledge that comes from experience, I have also decided to pursue a master's degree in elementary education, focusing on mathematics.

My Project

I need these 6 professional resource books, such as Encouraging Mathematical Thinkers, Helping with Math at Home, and Getting Your Math Message Out to Parents. With these resources, I will learn about how to support parents with the common core in mathematics. These books will help me to see these standards through the lens of parent rather than an educator so that I can in turn explain them to the parents in a way that they can understand. It is my hope that as I learn more about supporting parents, I will be able to develop parent support sessions that I can provide for interested families.

Parents want their children to be successful.

They want to support their children. These resources will allow me to better support parents as they help their children learn at home. It really is true that it takes a village to raise a child, and these resources will help bring the village together!
