Are you left confused and discouraged after investing significant time and energy into planning math lessons, only to encounter students who show little interest in engaging with the material?


Yes, I’ve had those days when I've poured my heart and soul into a math lesson, only to have half the class tune out as soon as I start talking? It's like we’re out here trying to inspire the next generation of doctors, lawyers, engineers, and architects, and the only question they have is, “Will this be on the test?” When you're met with more yawns than "a-ha" moments, it's hard not to feel like you're failing somehow. It can be so frustrating when our efforts don't seem to make a difference. Sometimes It's enough to make you want to throw in the towel.



Are you exhausted from continually trying to convince students that they can be successful in math if they would just make an effort?

I have often felt like a broken record, constantly replaying the same message to my students – "You can do it, if you just try"? It's like we're stuck in this endless cycle of encouragement, but they're not buying it. We're not asking for much – just a bit of effort, a little perseverance. It's draining, isn't it? We’ll keep showing them that they're capable of so much more than they think. Because deep down, we know they've got what it takes. But fear not, fellow warrior. You don’t have to fight this battle alone.  Help is on the way.  



Are you exasperated by the countless generic professional development sessions you've endured, that left you to figure out how to apply their principles to your math classes?


I know what it feels like to be stuck in professional development purgatory, enduring endless sessions that offer little more than generic platitudes and buzzwords.  I am quite familiar with the dread of sitting through yet another workshop on "21st-century teaching strategies" or "differentiated instruction," only to leave asking myself the question, “How is any of this going to help me teach math better?” or “Has this facilitator ever taught students with similar demographics as mine?” It's frustrating, isn't it? Like we're being fed empty promises with no real substance. But you know what? Like you, we are not content with the status quo.  We are offering a different kind of professional learning experience specifically designed for K-12 math teachers or those who plan to become K-12 math teachers in the future.

  • Imagine how amazing it would be if math class ended, and your students didn’t want to stop working?

  • What would it feel like to leave your class energized because all your students had spent the entire math class sharing their thinking, trying ideas, and asking each other questions, while working challenging math problems?

  • Are you ready to have a professional learning experience where you leave energized because you are armed with tips and strategies you can apply right away?
