Julie’s knowledge, resources and passion for content literacy has been and continues to be extremely valuable, even for math educators. The new Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices requires students to be better problem solvers and communicators in mathematics. If we want to see the math standards skillfully demonstrated by students, it is imperative that educators create classroom environments and utilize instructional practices that achieve the desired results. Julie’s trainings are a valuable resource that equip ALL educators for the task at hand. Thank you Julie!
