December 2014 Letter from Carolyn
Dear US Math Recovery® Members,
Educators with Math Recovery® professional development continue to amaze me with their dedication and thoughtful reflections. Whether the experienced Leader/Champion providing training or the first-time participant, the universal commitment to understanding children’s understanding of mathematics and to refining one’s own professional expertise inspires me every day. Thank you for the work you do to support numeracy education!
Please reserve October 26-29, 2015, for the US Math Recovery® Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. Dr. Robert Wright, Dr. James Martland, and Ms. Ann Stafford-Dillon, will be featured speakers at our conference. Stay tuned for more details about other featured presenters, how to submit a speaker proposal, and new opportunities and format for the conference.
To further support educators, the second edition of Teaching Number in the Classroom (Wright, R., Stanger, G., Stafford, A., & Martland, J. (2015). Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 Year Olds, Second Edition: SAGE Publications.) has arrived in our offices and is now being sent with Add+VantageMR® Course 1 materials!
Ms. Ann Stafford-Dillon will present a webinar on the new "Purple Book" on December 11, 2014, at 4:00 p.m. EST. Please see Ann’s message for more information or click here for the link to register for the webinar hosted by Corwin Press.
As we approach the holiday season, I have many things for which I am thankful. My Math Recovery® family is among those blessings. May you have time to relax and renew your energy for the children and educators you serve.
Chief Executive Officer
