District Math Coach Apple Valley, MN

I love the opportunity to take the course over time, with time to work with students, read and reflect in between. For me, this is a powerful format. I look forward to seeing other Math Recovery courses available in this format in the future!

I personally like the online collaboration and webinars getting info. directly from your team. The technology was pretty easy to use and effective. I like the way the modules were designed broken up into steps with links and resources available a click away.

Course Participant Apple Valley, MN

As usual, you have blown me away with all the new information that is so relevant to teaching children fractions. I will be working with a group of 4th graders and am looking forward to trying the activities and moving fraction thinking forward. I am in the process of doing AVMR 1 and AVMR 2 training in my district and am also blown away with how much all of this work is connecting. The facilitators were wonderful. Thanks for all your help.

Course Participant Apple Valley, MN

I appreciated the "hybrid" format of this course. I liked the flexibility of learning on my schedule, practicing with students, reflecting, and regular periods to meet as a group on-line.
