What's Included

Using the power of logic and reasoning, we'll explore math-oriented ways to solve problems! Through fun, hands-on activities and games, we'll apply inquiry-based strategies and investigate powerful techniques for deploying math as an effective tool. Problem-solving skills rooted in mathematics are foundational to careers in science and computer science, architecture, math, technology, and medicine. As young learners acquire a rewarding set of tools that increase speed and accuracy, they'll also build number sense, fill content gaps, and increase learning retention--while developing a solid foundation for success in math and beyond! Requirements: Bring a snack and a water bottle for breaks Heather Wing teaches at Comanche Elementary School, where she has taught third graders of all abilities since 2001. Since 2004, she has taught students whose primary home language is other than English (PHLOTE). For the last eight years Heather has led and chaired the Student Assistant Team (SAT), working directly with parents and teachers to ensure student success in all classrooms settings. A current National Board for Professional Teaching candidate, Ms. Wing has a bachelor’s of art and science in education from the College of Santa Fe with an endorsement in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL).

About This Organizer

We believe that children's lives change when their natural passion for learning is nurtured and transformed into habits of life-long learning and reflection. We believe that the world changes as these children learn to serve country and community with wisdom, conviction, and compassion.

In light of these beliefs,

 

  • We serve students of talent and character, offering them an education that broadens their perspectives, sharpens their minds, strengthens their bodies, and engages their hearts.

  • We commit to creating a caring, inclusive, and just community, using the geography and culture of our home in the Southwest to enrich our educational programs and to foster creativity, personal balance, and a connection to the natural world.

  • We devote our resources to ensure economic accessibility to our students and to support the wider community through outreach and community service.

  • We entrust this mission to our graduates and successors as we preserve our resources and serve the generations of children to come.
