    Karen, Brenda and all,

    I just wanted you both to know that if I can be of any help to you while
    you are going through the workshops, please let me know. I am currently
    back in the classroom and have 6th, 7th and 8th graders and I am
    constantly learning from them about the way they see, think and do
    mathematics. I strongly believe the only way we get better at teaching
    is by reflecting on what we do and by gathering evidence about what our
    students are learning.

    I would love to hear from you as you try the lessons with your children.

    Jan Robinson
