My wife and I had a great experience at the 2022 KY CEC Conference in Louisville. During my session and at my exhibit table, I appreciated the feedback and the opportunity to provide strategies and resources for many teachers and administrators to use with the student that htey help serve. We will definely plan on returned for the fourth time!

Join me on Saturday, October 22nd at the Mississippi Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference in Flowood, MS! I have two sessions: “Number Line to 10,000,000 and Other Math Manipulatives” – 8:00 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. AND “Designing and Construction Projects That Involve More Than STEM” – 9:00 a.m. – 9:55 a.m. I’m looking forward to the conference!

I am currently scheduling demonstrations for June/ July 2023. At this time, I have tentative workshops scheduled at education service centers in Harrisburg, AR, Pine Bluff, AR, El Paso, TX, San Angelo, TX, and Abilene, TX. Be sure to check the “Latest News” for updated information!

I was just informed that my proposals to present at the 2022 Mississippi Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference on October 22nd  in Flowood, MS was accepted! I will do one session that involves my math strategies, and my second session will involve how to implement my engaging STEM strategies. I hope to see everyone at both of my sessions!

I will be returning to present at the 2022 Kentucky Council for Exceptional Children Conference on November 20-22 in Louisville, KY. I presented at the 2021 KY CEC Conference and had a great experience; that is why I am going back! Check the “Latest News” for my session’s date and time.

I received notification from the 2022 CMC- North Conference Planning Committee in Pacific Grove, CA that my proposal was accepted. My session is on Saturday, December 3rd at 2:15- 3:15. I am looking forward to my session because of the positive feedback that I received from teachers at the 2021 CMC- South Conference in Palm Springs, CA!

I hope everyone has had a great summer! I am currently scheduling face-to-face and virtual demonstrations and workshops during the 2022-23 school. Get with your colleagues and let me know when I can help your students!

This summer has been very productive in regard to the potential to help struggling students with math. I have had the opportunity to do a virtual state-wide demonstration with the Mississippi Hearing Project in May 3rd, a three-hour workshop at Crowley’s Ridge Education Cooperative on June 6th in Harrisburg, AR, and a two-hour workshop on June 7th at ICAN in Little Rock, AR. I also had great sessions at the 2022 Making Connections Conference on June 8th and a virtual session at the 2022 Inclusive Practices Conference in Houston, TX. On June 23rd, I did a session at the 2022 Delta Area Association for the Improvement of Schools in Cleveland, MS.

In between my conference sessions and workshops, I shared my strategies with administrators in many parts of Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama.

My next major demonstration is at the 2022 Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching in San Antonio, TX. This is going to be a great way to end my summer! My school district, Rome City Schools in Rome, GA, will begin the 2022-23 school year on July 25th.

I am currently scheduling demonstrations and workshops and after school, during my district’s breaks and holidays, and three personal days this school year. Many consider this to be crazy and a lot of work due to the time and expense involved. Because I believe in what I am doing, this does not bother me at all. Contact me if you need anything!



I just received notification that my proposal to present was accepted for the Region 4 Inclusive Practices Conference in Houston, TX on June 14-15. The conference is going to be virtual. I am looking forward to the conference because I had a positive experience during last year’s conference. Follow the “Latest News” for details regarding the exact time and date!

I am looking forward to meeting with the administrators at Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Indianapolis on March 17th at 8:30. Because I believe that all student can learn, I am looking forward to sharing my VI math strategies and hopefully help many students in Indiana!
