A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

"It's not that I'm so smart; it's just that I stay with the problems longer."
~Albert Einstein

Wouldn't it be amazing if all our students embraced this philosophy? Learning math and developing the ability to persist is challenging but not impossible. I am so excited to bring you this seminar full of practical ideas for increasing engagement and perseverance in your grade 6-12 math students, whether you're teaching in-person or online.

We are in an ever-changing world of education with so many new initiatives, new standards, and new pressures seemingly every year including learning how to teach virtually. And yet, with so many changes, information has become even more accessible to learn and grow from. Much like you, I love creating ways for students to talk and debate about math, to collaborate and learn from each other, and to be proud of what they accomplish every day.

This seminar day is focused on our passion: teaching math to grades 6-12 students! Together, we will dive into classroom-tested, research-based practices that turn theory into meaningful, accessible, and enriching experiences for students. This seminar is designed to inspire excitement for learning and make math come alive in your in-person or virtual classroom.

I want to help you explore innovative ideas and effective approaches to teaching and leave feeling ready to turn around and implement these ideas in your classroom the next day. Join me for an engaging day of learning as we focus on elevating the success of you and your students.

Ashley Taplin

P.S. You will leave this seminar equipped with a wealth of practical, ready-to-use strategies AND with renewed energy to make a marked difference in the lives of your students!
