I was just informed that my session at North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference Session on February 22nd is 5:30-6:15. This will be my second NCCTM Conference. My 2019 session was face-to-face, and this year’s session will be virtual. See you then!

I have accepted an invitation to share my low vision and braille math manipulatives at the PATINS Project on March 17th in Indianapolis. Follow the “Latest News” for the time of my demonstration. Bev Sharritt, PATINS Specialist in the areas of Blind/ Low Vision, Assistive Technology in the IEP, Assistive Technology Team Development, is your contact to register when registration becomes available.

I appreciate all of the positive feedback I have received from people all over the United States regarding my indoor miniature golf course STEM project that I designed with my students. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the project.

My students and I built an indoor glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course at our school. They had to use math, apply problem solving skills, and collaborate. It was a fun and very beneficial activity for them. Here’s a recent article in Inside Golf newspaper about our STEM project.

My 2021 KY CEC session is at 1:15- 2:45 on November 22nd. I hope to see everyone during my session!

Because I am still in the classroom at Elm Street Elementary in Rome, GA, I had to decline invitations to the Pennsylvania Council for Exceptional Children Conference (October 2nd), 2021 Florida Council for Exceptional Children Conference (October 23rd), 2021 Pathways 2 Possibilities Conference (in Biloxi, MS on November 17th), 2021 California Mathematics Council Conference (December 5th), and 2022 California Association of Resource and Special Education Teachers Conference (February 25th.) I informed the conferences’ organizers to keep me in mind for future conferences.

I did a virtual demonstration on October 22nd with James Lee, Math Specialist at Crowley’s Ridge Education Cooperative in Harrisburg, AR. Mr. Lee informed me that he is interested in scheduling staff development with the teachers in his region during the 2022 summer!

I had a great session at the 2021 Louisiana Accessible Education Materials Conference, 2021 Californian Mathematics Council Conference in Palm Springs on November 5th and two sessions at the 2021 South Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference in Columbia, SC on November 11th. I met many enthusiastic teachers and administrators during my sessions.

Before my SCCTM sessions, I met with Dena Jude, Special Education Math Specialist, and LaVeda Green, Coordinator of Specialized Instruction and Curriculum Supports, Richland One County Schools in Columbia, SC. Ms. Jude is going to collaborate with her colleagues to schedule staff development with her teachers this summer. Follow the “Latest News” tab for details.

I appreciate Sonya Clark, North Carolina Assistive Technology Program, for helping coordinate my session at her 2021 NC AT Expo. I hope my strategies will help many of the students that the NC AT Program helps serve!

I appreciate James Lee, Math Specialist at Crowley’s Ridge Education Service Center, taking some time to hear about my math strategies. I am going to conduct a virtual demonstration on October 22nd at 4:00 EST.
