Today I am starting a new beginning for myself. I have a new job this year! I am now the ‘Inner-City Early Learning’ Helping Teacher in the Surrey School District #36. The anticipation of new challenges and passion for helping our struggling early learners has sparked new excitement in me. With the help of technology I am able to post resources, ideas, activities and information that others can easily access. I am trying to go ‘paper less’ this year. Ideas, activities, handouts and information will be attached to this blog. Please let me know what you think about this idea and how it works for you. The first session entitled “Building a Numeracy Foundation” refers to a session I presented in Surrey, B.C. on August 29, 2012.
