I teach 6th-grade math at Knapp Forest Elementary in Grand Rapids, MI. This is my second year teaching CMP3. I attended the "Getting to Know 6th-grade CMP workshop" prior to my first year teaching CMP3 and fell in love with the program! I also attended the User's Conference and the Getting to Know 7th-grade CMP workshop and continued to be challenged in my instructional practices and creating a student-centered classroom. I recently finished my Masters in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment and have been able to incorporate many 21st century skills into my CMP classroom.
