I am Mary Violette. I teach the students who are identified as Gifted and Talented in Waterville. I teach three daily math classes: fourth grade accelerated math, fifth grade accelerated math, and honors geometry for eighth graders. I also have weekly pullouts in third grade math, as well as pullouts in ELA, social studies, and science for grades 3-8.

"What works to best optimize student learning" summarizes what I hope to learn through reading and reflecting on this book. I look forward to reading the posts of other teachers because I learn so much from other teachers when they share their classroom experiences.
