A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

If COVID-19 has taught us anything it is that we cannot always control what is happening around us. The unfortunate reality is that despite the best efforts of our schools in these unprecedented times, many students’ learning took a dramatic downward turn, leaving them with shaky foundations and gaps in their learning – particularly in Math. As we strive to catch our students up, we can do our part to continue to do what we do best – TEACH! And, the good news is that I can help you!

I have designed this seminar to provide you with a wealth of cutting-edge, proven techniques and ideas to help you catch up your students who have fallen behind or have gaps in their Mathematical understanding. I want to share practical ideas and approaches you can use to help students who are frustrated, who are reluctant, who lack the stamina and motivation to persevere in solving complex Math problems. In our day together, we will investigate ways to engage our students in authentic situations that are relevant and interesting to them. I will share a variety of Math activities that are engaging and fun for students, giving you great opportunities to assess and check for misconceptions. We will explore scaffolding techniques for problem-solving, ideas for offering choices in Math to help motivate our students, effective ways to target their specific learning needs, and so much more!

Join me and experience a productive day of learning, filled with highly practical strategies and resources designed to help you make a huge difference in your students’ Mathematical lives. My goal is to give you an array of ideas and activities you can use the very next day to help your students catch up in Math. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my experiences, strategies and insights with you!
