I have been in education 15 years now and have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, all Math and Science, ESL, Bilingual, general education, special education students inclusion. I have been in my present role for 2 years now serving as a Math Instructional Specialist/Coach for K-5 Math in my highly Title I building of over 1,300 students and 120 staff.
Totally believe in the power of guided math as learned from Kathy Spruiell from Georgia. I was doing guided math before I learned about it from Kathy, but when I attended training with her, it brought a name to something I was doing and it brought more structure to it. It validated me and how I was teaching.
