I have been corresponding with Allen Hogie, President of the South Dakota Teachers of Mathematics. I have accepted the opportunity to share my teaching strategies for fractions in the upcoming SDCTM newsletter.

I met with Tracy Pittman, Director of Special Education in Winston-Salem/ Forsyth County Schools. NC at 2:45. It was great meeting Ms. Pittman and sharing my teaching strategies with her. Ms. Pittman is going to distribute my information with her colleagues. Assuming her colleagues also see the benefits of my math manipulatives, we have tentatively scheduled trainings on November 19th or 20th. Please note that we are in the early stages in scheduling a training. Be sure to follow the “Latest News” for updated information.

I am going to share my teaching strategies with Paul Eklund, Assistive Technology Specialists at the North Carolina Assistive Technology Program in Winston Salem, on November 2nd at 1:30. I appreciate his willingness to take some time to see some new math strategies.

It is going to be an exciting day on November 2nd! I will be doing a session at the 2018 NCCTM Conference at 8:30 and then another demonstration at NCATP in Winston-Salem at 1:30. I scheduling math demonstration that afternoon. Feel free to call or send an email if you have some time!

During my fall break (October 1-5), I was given the opportunity to meet many Georgia administrators and teachers in Athens,Tallapoosa, Hamilton, Franklin, and Columbus. Some of the math demonstrations were scheduled, and some were unannounced because I was in the area. As we all know, some of the best things in life happen when we least expect them. Thanks for your time and interest!

I am going to share my teaching strategies with Suzanne Korngold, Director of Special Education, on October 3rd at 10:30. I appreciate her time and willingness to find new teaching strategies for the students in her school district.

Sara Tabb, Coordinator of Deaf/ Hard of Hearing Services at Northeast Georgia RESA, has invited me to do a demonstration for the teachers in her area at Cleveland Road Elementary in Bogart, GA, which is just outside of Athens, GA. See you there!

I reached out to Holly Mauney, Director of School Improvement, at Pioneer RESA. After Ms. Mauney reviewed the information that I emailed her, she invited me to share my math strategies with her colleagues on September 19th. The beginning time is going to be either 2:00 or 2:30. Stay tuned for the exact time when I will begin to share my teaching strategies.

This demonstration will be after my demonstration at Oconee County Schools, SC. I anticipate a busy day, but there are going to be two worthwhile opportunities for me to hopefully help a lot of students.

I am going to do a demonstration for administrators at Oconee County Schools, SC. I have had the opportunity at several South Carolina locations over the past six months. My plan is to help as many South Carolina students in math this year and beyond!

I would like to thank Megan Cote for sharing my Council for Exceptional Children and Canadian Deafblind Association Intervention articles with state deaf-blind project Family Engagement Coordinators around the United States. Because my district started the 2018-19 school year on July 30th, it would have been hard to personally contact all of Ms. Cote’s colleagues.

I have been in contact with Ken McCullock, Past President of the Northern Rockies AER. Mr. McCullock offered to set up an exhibit table for the conference this fall. Due to the distance from Rome, GA to Bozeman, MT and needing to serve my students at Elm Street Elementary, I am very appreciate of his time and willingness to share my VI teaching strategies with his colleagues!
