Workshop participant applying new skills

Do you need additional help understanding or implementing Singapore Math or Common Core Math in your classrooms, school or district? Do you need a trainer to explain the program to parents? Bring an experienced presenter to you. I have trained teachers and helped parents in both public and private school settings in urban and rural areas. After understanding how to effectively implement these approaches, teachers all over the US have seen their students’ math understanding and skills improve and test scores rise. Let Susan help you on the journey to increased success too!
