Jennifer's goal is to ensure all students have positive mathematics experiences and that teachers have the tools to support all students in the area of mathematics

Confident engaged students

At the heart of Jennifer's math workshop message is one of her core beliefs about teaching children:  an important key to optimizing learning is student engagement. Engagement comes from joyful learning experiences, from students feeling curious, and from students working with one another. As dedicated educators, we all strive to see the spark of excitement in students when they are actively engaged in their own math learning and when they have the confidence to rely on their own reasoning to approach new problems.

Empowering Each Teacher To Be the Best

Jennifer strives to ensure a unique and collaborative experience with those she supports. She spends time to get to know the school, resources, and desired outcomes in order to personalize the professional development she provides. Her number one goal is to build the capacity in teachers to empower each one of them to be a skilled and confident teacher of mathematics.
