An educator since 1979, Tammy L. Jones has worked with students from first grade through college. Currently, Tammy is consulting with individual school districts in training teachers on strategies for making content accessible to all learners. Writing integrations as well as literacy connections are foundational in everything Tammy does. A variety of resources is offered for mathematics Pre-K through 12 as well as several that are interdisciplinary. Electronic training is also offered. As a teacher, Tammy’s goal was that all students understand and appreciate the mathematics they were studying; that they could read it, write it, explore it, and communicate it with confidence; and that they would be able to use mathematics as they need to in their lives. She believes that problem-solving, followed by a well-reasoned presentation of results, is central to the process of learning mathematics and that this learning happens most effectively in a cooperative, student-centered classroom.
