I love to tutor students of all ages and to write creative math activities! For 30 years before retirement, I managed math textbook projects and wrote supplemental activities for major textbook publishers. Since then, I've written clear and concise goals checklists and related resources for K-8 math. The checklists are a great reference for parents and teachers, including TpT sellers.
I ask students a lot of questions to help THEM figure out what to do. I often use matching games to help students match numbers, models, and expressions. The three graphs in my store banner are based on hundreds of my own observations of students in Grades K-8 who were using printed Multi-Match card games.
While working as an editor for Prentice Hall, I received the "Way-to-Go" Award for work on development of a mathematics skills intervention kit.
