A Glimpse into Mathematics Classrooms Across the District

Implementation Week 2

You've done it again!

I am once again in awe of what you do every day for the students of Exeter Township. I feel proud every time I enter one of your classrooms and have the privilege of watching our new math programs in action. Your obvious devotion to what's best for kids is clearly evident as we move through this implementation process together. Keep up the great work! Take a look below at some of the great "math moments" I was able to capture in my travels around the district...

As promised, here are this week's shout-outs!

Let's hear it for...

Our 6th grade CPM team at Reiffton for going above and beyond with their collaboration and teamwork efforts! Working together makes everything easier!

Paul McCracken for helping to coach the 5th grade team at Reiffton through the intricacies of the Investigations program! Keep it up Paul!

Our 3rd grade teams at Owatin Creek and Lorane for reaching out for support, and for always wanting to improve their practice! Awesome!

Scott Haag at the Junior High for continuing to stay the course even when things seem impossible...(and your online classes suddenly disappear into thin air)...Thanks for your patience Scott!

Our high school team for embracing the practices of CPM, even if they don't teach CPM courses! Wow!

Our 4th grade team at Jacksonwald for continued teamwork, and for positive attitudes that are absolutely infectious! The power of positive thinking is out in force at JKD!

A Peak at Next Week...

Math support this week (9/15-9/19) is by appointment only. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like Deb and I to come and see you, please let us know!

Please note: Heidi will be out of the office on Monday, September 15th.

Quote of the Week

"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind." -Albert Einstein

We all know that Albert Einstein was not a great student in elementary school...he struggled with memorizing times tables and was constantly in trouble because of his creative spirit...he even received unsatisfactory marks in mathematics. I think we can gain great insight into the minds of creative thinkers, and how they learn, by listening to this great mathematical mind.
