Math Expressions Training

Aug 30th, 2016

Beginning this fall, our Kindergarten through 5th grade students will use the Houghton Mifflin Math Expressions curriculum. Watch for more information in the weeks ahead about this exciting change and how you can support your child's math growth.

To help us better prepare for this new curriculum, Math Instruction expert, Judy Rohde, worked with our Annunciation teachers and classroom aides (instructional assistants) this past week during our workshop. 

Judy is a true leader in professional development.  Judy Rohde helped to create the Minnesota state mathematics standards. She has served as a member of the National Board of Professional Math Teachers and is a past recipient of the United States Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Judy is an active member of the Minnesota Mathematics Best Practice Network and co-author and editor for SciMathMn.  In addition, Judy serves on the Board of Directors for Math Masters, MN and is a mathematics instructional coach, college professor, and a professional development guru. Judy is passionate about math, effective instruction, and helping students and teachers succeed. 

Judy will return to Annunciation during the school year as a resource and coach to support our efforts to provide excellent math instruction.
