I have been in correspondence with The Florida Council for Exceptional Children and Mississippi Council for Exception Children regarding the possibility of sharing my strategies at their 2020 conferences. Please follow the “Latest News” for updated information.

I originally panned on sharing my strategies at the JSU Region In-Service Center on June 11th. Due to a scheduling conflict, my demonstration date has been change to July 9th. See you this summer!

I just accepted an invitation from Eric Lee, Director of the Jacksonville state University Regional In-Service Center, to share my math strategies at the Jacksonville State University Regional In-Service Center in Jacksonville, AL. I am excited to share my math strategies with teachers and administrators as well as return to where I earned my bachelor and master’s degrees.

Because of the versatility of my math strategies, I am going to do a morning session (8:30-11:30) for regular and special education teachers and an afternoon session (12:30-3:30) for teachers of the visually impaired.

I hope to see you at one of my sessions!

I contacted Dr. Boyd Rogan, Director of the University of Alabama Regional In-service Center, after my session at the 2019 Learning Alabama Forward Conference on November 21st. Because of the feedback from his colleagues at the conference, he invited me to do a demonstration on June 10th.

At this time, I will be sharing my strategies at four of the regional education in-service centers in June 2020. I am waiting for two centers to confirm a date and time this summer.

I accepted an invitation from Tammy Wynn, Assistant Director for Professional Development, to share my strategies on June 8th at 8:30-11:30. I enjoyed meeting her at the 2019 Learning forward Alabama Conference on November 21st, and I am looking forward to sharing my strategies with her colleagues at her In-Service Center in Florence, AL this summer.

I reached to Dr. Carrie Bearden of the Council of Exceptional Children because I wanted to update her about the progress of my teaching strategies since my demonstration at the 2013 Kentucky CEC Conference. I sent her some demonstration videos as well as the resources that I gave participants at the 2019 South Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference on November 15th and 2019 Learning Forward Alabama Conference on November 21st. Dr. Bearden invited me to her 2020 Kentucky CEC Conference in Louisville in November. Because of the positive feedback that I received at the 2013 Kentucky CEC Conference, I told her that I would like to attend.

Please follow the “Latest News” for the exact date and time of my session when it becomes available.

Dr. Evelyn Hodge, Director of the Central Alabama Regional Education In-Service Center at Alabama State University, has invited me to do a session this summer at the Central Alabama Regional Education In-Service Center’s Summer Math Boot Camp on June 16, 2020 in Montgomery, AL. Because I met many of her colleagues and educators in her region at her conference on September 28th, this will be a great opportunity to demonstrate more advanced uses of my math manipulatives. See you at the Summer Boot Camp!

I appreciate Shawna Hanson, Outreach Coordinator at MonTECH, in Missoula, MT, for inviting me to share my teaching strategies with her and her colleagues on June 24, 2020 at 10:00.

Dr. Dwight Jinright, Director of the University of Montevallo Regional In-Service Education Center, invited me to do two sessions at his center in Birmingham, AL. The first session, 8:30-11:30, will be for regular education and special education teachers. The second session will be for teachers of the visually impaired at 12:30- 3:30. I am looking forward to helping many teachers with their students who are having difficulty learn their math standards.

I have been invited to do a session at the 2020 Mississippi Effective Teacher Conference in Jackson, MS on June 15th. When Kelli Olive, Coordinator of Professional Development/ Instructor of Lifelong Learning at Jackson State University contacted me, I was very appreciative of the opportunity!
