After my demonstration with Rhonda Thompson, Director of Older Blind and Children Services, and her colleagues in Greenville, SC on July 24th, she asked me to do a follow up demonstration on November 1st.

November 1st is going to be a great day to share my teaching strategies in North and South Carolina. At 8:30, I am going to do a session at the 2018 North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference. When the demonstration is over, I am going revisit the South Carolina Commission for the Blind in Greenville at 2:30.

My goal is to eventually help many regular education students as well as VI students on November 1st. That is what my manipulatives are all about- helping ALL students!

See you at the NCCTM Conference!

I was looking on the Internet, and I found a demonstration video that the Oklahoma ABLE Tech Assistive Technology Center had done with the manipulatives they had purchased about 2 1/2 years ago. In March 2018, the North Carolina Assistive Technology Program also did a demonstration video to share my teaching strategies with the NC teachers that they support.

I have scheduled a demonstration on July 23rd at 1:00 with Marie Underwood, Director of Shared Services, at Northeast Georgia RESA.
