Hello-

As you can see, my name is Ann Luginbuhl. I teach at Charlotte Elementary School in Charlotte. I teach the older students, the pupils in grades 6,7 and 8. Self contained. This means I am teaching all subjects- except gym, health, art and music. There are eleven students in my classroom. I teach three math groups every day. The great thing about this is that my students can be exposed to a wide variety of concepts across multiple levels.

I am in this class to combat the attitude among my students that math is a series of formulas that you apply to specific math problems to get answers. I want to get them to see math as a toolbox that is used to solve all kinds of problems. Each new skill is simply a new tool to apply to all kinds problems.

I met with a group in Machias and got some great ideas to get started. I am looking forward to sharing and learning.
