## How can I help?

I help teachers understand mathematics and STEM more deeply so their students learn more.

I help teachers learn to use manipulatives effectively so they build a solid conceptual foundation in mathematics for their students.

I help teachers develop a wider range of research-based instructional strategy so their classroom instruction is more effective for every learner.

I help schools & districts plan curriculum & instruction which engages students in a rigorous and coherent mathematics program.
