I am going to meet with Ettor Strada, Special Education Director, at the Arizona Academy of Math and Science in Tucson at 9:00. Even though it the middle of summer for students, administrators know that school will be here before we know it!

At 10:00, I am going to meet with the staff at Tuscon Unified School District’s Wakefield Parent Center. The purpose of my meeting is to provide additional resources for parents to use with their children during the 2016-17 school year.

I appreciated the opportunity to share my low vision and braille manipulatives at the University of Arizona’s Department of Disability and Psycheducational Studies in Tucson, AZ on June 20th.

Dr. Penny Rosenblum invited me to demonstrate my teaching strategies to her graduate students who serve VI students in many parts of Arizona. They were very receptive and willing to ask questions during and after my demonstration.

I received an update from Emmy Marchioni, FLAEYC Administrative Coordinator, that my article will be published in July. The article goes in-depth about how all students can learn their fractions’ standards with my manipulatives. My manipulatives serve as a bridge from visual to abstract concepts.

I am going to do demonstrations at the 2016 FLAEYC Conference in Orlando, FL on September 24-25. This will be my first conference in Florida. I am looking forward to meeting and sharing my teaching strategies with many Florida educators and administrators in a few months!
