Committed to Best Practices in Mathematics Instruction

Mathematics Professional Learning

Jennifer specializes in offering professional learning services to school teams on mathematics instructional best practices. She focuses on building teacher pedagogical content knowledge, helping them excel as teachers of mathematics. 

Implementing Math Workshop

Jennifer’s book, Math Workshop, details three structures for your math class that focus on a student-centered environment. 

Components of a Math Workshop

Math Workshop is a differentiated approach to mathematics instruction that puts the student at the center of the learning environment. Through the use of small group and whole class focus lessons and engaging learning stations, students experience mathematics through investigation. Academic discourse and reflection are critical elements of the Math Workshop model – a place where students believe in themselves as mathematicians!

Working with Jennifer is a transformative experience! She tailors her sessions to meet teachers' needs in order to deeply explore the components of math workshop. Jennifer enthusiastically models math workshop as she facilitates conversations and engages teachers through hands-on experiences. She understands the complexity of being a teacher. As a result, teachers leave feeling valued, energized, and ready to take the resources and tools provided back to their classrooms.

Our district is incredibly lucky to partner with Jennifer Lempp as an educational consultant. Through our collaboration with Ms. Lempp, our district is forming a common definition of the math workshop model. From the moment I saw Jennifer present, I couldn’t wait to get her in front of our elementary staff. Jennifer is a joy to work with. She is responsive, collaborative, and highly professional. After our very first session, teachers commented, “She was realistic and positive, while not asking for unrealistic changes… her suggestions were easily digested and she was wonderful overall,” and “...her empathy for what happens in many math classes was appreciated. Strategies will be tried and tested.” Our elementary teachers described her as a engaging, refreshing, genuine, knowledgeable, clear, interesting, and informative. It is clear that Jennifer is always a teacher at heart, and her session was reflected this. We are looking forward to evolving math workshop over time, through our collaboration, guidance from Jennifer.
