Terry Palmieri specializes in the development and implementation of standard-based educational math and literacy activities for students in K - 2nd grade. During her 25 years of experience as a classroom teacher for students in the first three grade levels, she gravitated toward the use and development of interactive center activities to maximize learning. Positive feedback from colleagues who participated in her local and statewide workshops prompted Terry to share this experience-based expertise with other educators through her teacher-friendly math activity resources. Terry served as the Math Specialist in a Primary Project Child classroom with the Palm Beach County School Board for 5 years. She continues to develop standard-based educational math and literacy activities for students in K - 2nd grade. Her students' success with innovative interactive center activities and their enthusiasm for learning ignites her passion for continuous improvement.
Children learn best when they engage in many hands-on activities and are immersed in their learning experiences.
