RIMTA SPRING MEETING!
Join us in May 17, 2018!
Radisson Hotel, Warwick RI
4:00 - 8:00pm
RIMTA is pleased to announce that Susan O’Connell will be speaking at our Spring Meeting on May 17, 2018. Her focus is primarily on elementary education, but her ideas and insights are applicable to teachers of Grades K-12.
Ms. O’Connell has decades of experience supporting teachers in making sense of mathematics and effectively shifting how they teach. As a former elementary teacher, reading specialist, and math coach, Sue knows what it’s like in the classroom and her background is evident throughout her work as she unpacks best practices in a clear, practical, and upbeat way.
She is the lead author of Math in Practice, a new grade-by-grade K-5 professional learning resource. She is also co-author of the bestselling Putting the Practices Into Action, Mastering the Basic Math Facts in Addition and Subtraction, and Mastering the Basic Math Facts in Multiplication and Division. She served as editor of Heinemann’s popular Math Process Standards series and also wrote the bestselling Now I Get It.
Sue is a nationally known speaker and education consultant who directs Quality Teacher Development, an organization committed to providing outstanding math professional development for schools and districts across the country. If you attend one of her presentations, you will leave with ideas you can use in your classes the next day!
