Bev Sharritt, Blind/Low Vision and Issues Concerning AEM and AT in Indiana Specialist for Promoting Assistive Technology and Instruction for All Students, heard about my teaching strategies and manipulatives from her colleagues after they saw my skyped demonstration on May 1st. As a result, we skyped a demonstration on May 31st at 3:30. I enjoyed hearing the enthusiasm about my strategies from Bev and her colleagues!

I talked to Chantai Snellgrove, Editor of Parenting Special Needs Magazine, about publishing an article in her magazine. I told her about Dana Tarter, a deafblind teacher how teaches in Georgia. Ms. Tartar uses my math manipulatives to teach life skills math to her students. Because Ms. Tartar is a role model to her colleagues and students, Ms. Snellgrove is going to publish an article about her. I am looking forward to reading the article about a teacher making a difference!

I appreciate Sue Keat, K-5 Math Content Specialist in Muscogee County Schools, GA, for her willingness to meet with me on June 5th at 2:00 in Columbus, GA. Hopefully, I will be able to help at least one of her students during the 2019-20 school year!

My summer will be off to a great start because I will be traveling to Pensacola, FL to do a demonstration with Susan Weddle, Technology Specialist, and her colleagues at the FDLRS Emerald Coast on June 3rd at 10:00. This will be my first FDLRS demonstration even though I had my manipulatives posted on their website about two years ago. I am looking forward the chance to meet some of Florida’s educators and specialists!

I am going to skype a demonstration to PATINS Project of Indiana on May 1st at 3:30. Kelli Suding, Specialist of Autism, Specific Learning Disabilities, Chrome Accessibility, AEM, and AT Integration, is helping organize this demonstration. Thanks for your help!

I am going to share how my idea went from a piece of paper to a number line to 10,000,000 and other math manipulatives with Tashia Twyman, Director of Communication and Public Engagement, on April 26th at 3:00. This interview is going to be exciting!

In addition to my demonstration to the Cleburne County Schools’ district office at 10:30, I was able to do a demonstration at Cleburne County Elementary in Heflin, AL at 12:00 with their Data Team and at West Haralson County Elementary’s Leadership Team in Tallapoosa, GA at 3:00. I appreciate the interest of all the teachers and administrators who were willing to listen to my strategies during this busy time of year.

I appreciate Amber Smithson’s return phone call! After giving the highlights of my teaching strategies to her, I was able to schedule a demonstration with Ms. Smithson and her colleagues in Chattanooga, TN at 2:30 on March 29th. What a great way to end my spring break!

I am going to meet with Coline Worthy, Instruction, Curriculum, and Professional Development Coordinator for Cleburne County Schools, AL, on March 28th at 10:30 in Heflin, AL. I appreciate her willingness to see the benefits of my teaching strategies during this busy time of year.

I am excited about the opportunity to share my teaching strategies at the 2019 NCCTM Western Regional Conference on March 16th at 9:00. This will be my second North Carolina conference within the last five months; I did a session at the 2018 NCCTM Conference in Greensboro, NC on November 2, 2018. See you at the conference!
