TK-8 Math COach

Education is shifting. We need to be educating students to solve for problems that we can’t even conceive of yet. We need to help them develop skills to ‘think out of the box’ and to use multiple methods. And most importantly, we need them to appreciate that ‘mistakes’ are opportunities for learning, not dead ends. We want students to break problems into pieces, and then persevere through the pieces to get to a solution.”
