Hunter- Kinard-Tyler Elementary School is off to a great start this 2015-2016 school year. Ms. Gerald has established several professional development activities and programs to assist her staff in new and interesting ways that will enhance their ability to instruct their students this year.
The first of many seminars was presented by author Concepcion Molina titled, “The Problem with Math is English.” Dr. Molina showed and explained to the HKTE math staff that teaching math becomes easier when teachers are able to communicate the English language, symbolism, and representation of math to all of their students in several ways without shortcuts. Correct mathematical English will enrich the content knowledge and assist the teacher and student in finding confidence in their ability to think and reason through math.
