You want each and every child to be successful mathematicians, and you feel the burden of that responsibility.
You desire for them to have a strong number sense, fraction sense, or decimal sense, but all your students come to you on different levels with different backgrounds.
You believe that learning should be hands-on and fun, but it takes so much time and effort to find those activities.
I believe every teacher can develop number sense
with hands-on and differentiated lessons.
You’ve Got This.
You can be the teacher you want to be, and I will provide you with the resources to help!

We All Have A Story, and this is Mine!
If asked, I used to duck my head in embarrassment and say, “I’m not good at math.”All through school it was a struggle to make the A’s and B’s that were expected. And heaven forbid if I was required to do mental math….that wasn’t happening. But then things changed.
I was sitting in a college class on how to teach math and the light bulb came on. As we “played” with base ten blocks I suddenly understood subtraction with regrouping. For years, I could work the problem but I never understood why I was crossing out numbers and adding little ones. At 21, I finally understood why. And I became determined to help each of my students develop this understanding too. I began researching how to build number sense, and I learned that there was more than one way to solve problems and numerous hands-on methods to help children visualize math.
And through all this, I found myself enjoying math for the first time EVER. Surprise, I could even do mental math. And as I became more successful in my understanding of place values and all the different ways to teach it, my students began to succeed too….even when my room was filled with children that needed extra support. I discovered that when I allowed children to explore, play with, and work problems out in ways that made sense to them, they could develop a strong number sense.
I know you want to build number sense in your students, and I can help you!
