Karen, Brenda and all,
I just wanted you both to know that if I can be of any help to you while
you are going through the workshops, please let me know. I am currently
back in the classroom and have 6th, 7th and 8th graders and I am
constantly learning from them about the way they see, think and do
mathematics. I strongly believe the only way we get better at teaching
is by reflecting on what we do and by gathering evidence about what our
students are learning.
I would love to hear from you as you try the lessons with your children.
