TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Donna Boucher has been an educator for more than twenty-five years, with classroom experience in grades 2-5. As a campus-based K-5 math instructional coach, she found a passion for early numeracy and worked with K-2 teachers to take the mystery out of teaching math. As a K-5 math interventionist, Donna put theory into practice on a daily basis. She has spoken at numerous state and national conferences, and through her blog, Math Coach’s Corner, she is able to share her love for math with a worldwide audience. Donna is also the coauthor of Guided Math Workshop.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Having taught grades 3-5 for most of my career, primary (K-2) math is now a passion. I look for ways to prevent the gaps I saw in my 3-5 students. I try to create activities and resources that are engaging, but contain sound math. Multiple representations and activities that follow the CRA (concrete-->representational-->abstract) sequence of instruction are my specialty. I also try to make products that are easy for teachers to put together and implement in their classrooms.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I keep busy presenting at both the state and national level: NCTM Annual Meeting and Exposition, 2019; CMC South Conference, 2019; ASCD Empower19, 2019; Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching (CAMT), 2013-2018; Missouri Early Learning Conference, 2016

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

With an accounting information systems background, teaching is my second career, so I look at math through a real-world lens. I am a life-long learner and continue my education through online book studies, blogging, reading, and engaging with other educators around the world on Twitter.
