THE ADDITION YOU NEED
I am a teacher/leader passionate about mathematics education. With nearly 20 years experience in education, I offer a range of services for schools and individuals including consulting, coaching and professional learning sessions.
I have been a classroom teacher, mathematics coordinator and curriculum coordinator in primary schools. Since 2011, I have been a Numeracy Consultant at a system level providing principals and teachers with current pedagogical content knowledge as well as mathematical content knowledge.
I have been a project leader for 12 schools in a four year NSW Department of Education project to improve the numeracy outcomes for K-2 students in particular. I am current with the recent ACARA Numeracy Learning Progressions and how they amplify the Australian Curriculum and can be used to target and enhance student learning.
I can tailor professional learning and support to suit your needs. Below is a list of some services I offer:
Whole school programs - designed to meet the needs of the school. This usually involves working side by side with teachers in the classroom on a regular basis.
Staff Meetings - to deepen teachers' Mathematical Content Knowledge (MCK) and/or Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) specifically to the teaching of mathematics.
Professional Learning Days - whole school staff - focus determined by school need.
Leadership Learning Communities - designed to provide school leadership with the tools and necessary strategies to ensure the school community promotes a culture of mathematics learning across the entire school.
