    Good morning!  My name is Jennifer Nickerson and I am the Curriculum Coordinator for RSU 64 (Bradford, Corinth, Hudson, Kenduskeag, and Stetson) just north of Bangor.  The theme for professional development in our district this year is Visible Learning.  I led the introductory session in August with the staff on surface, deep, and transfer level learning.  Then in October, we revisited the topic - going deeper!  I am currently attending Visible Learning ELA and Math sessions in our region in conjunction with the DOE and am eager to learn more.  We all have limited time and need to make the most of it.  I have been trying to model high-impact instructional strategies with staff through my PD sessions and also want to be able to support them as they try out some of these techniques with students.

    Hello to All, 

    I am Regina Lewis, a former high school mathematics teacher.  Currently, I am working for Maine Department of Education as the Coordinator of the NAEP and International Assessments. I am always interested in learning about the learning processes.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm Colin Bacon, a math teacher from Central High School in RSU 64. This year, I'm diving headfirst into the Visible Learning texts and workshops. I attended the Dine and Discuss last week, and the PREP conference at UTC today. I'm going to participate in this book study, as well as a book study for "Teaching Mathematics in the Visible Learning Classroom" with my department at the high school.

    I'm a big fan of what I've heard and read so far, I feel like Visible Learning is a productive way to enhance the learning for students in the classroom. It has also lit a new fire in my teaching, as I have all these new things to try!

    I look forward to discussing this text with you all over the course of this study!

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Clare Harrington. I am the K-2 math Specialist for MSAD 51 (Cumberland/North Yarmouth).  The math mentor group I work with has started using the Visible Learning in Math book to guide our discussions about high impact teaching strategies.  I was interested in participating with this group to hear from a larger group of educators, both in location and in grade spans.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Pam Rawson, a teacher at Baxter Academy in Portland. I read a little bit of the original Visible Learning book last year and was curious about how the results applied to mathematics learning. I'm one of the Dine & Discuss facilitators, so I had a chance to read the book over the summer. I'm hoping that this book group will serve as an opportunity to review and dig deeper.

    Hi, I'm Jenny Jorgensen and retired from 33 years of public school a year and a half ago and now work full time at a variety of colleges.  I work as a Mathematics Field Coach for the University of Maine at Farmington, teach Math Methods and a course for elementary teachers at USM and teach a math class at SMCC on the Brunswick Campus.  This all keeps me busy and very invested in using practices that are going to make a difference. I've read Visible Learning and hope to gain more insight about effect size and learn what others have to say about what they learn through reading the book.

    Hello.  My name is Renee Harriet and I primarily teach Geometry at Nokomis Regional High School.  I am hoping to learn teaching strategies that will help my sophomores learn and retain the content and enjoy the subject.

    I am Beth Hayden, a math teacher at Bonny Eagle High School in Standish. I believe the content of this book will add another layer of understanding to the Assessment for Learning process that is our focus (we started last year). I like that the focus of the book is specifically on mathematics.

    I'm a Gifted and Talented Consulting Teacher for Auburn School Department.  This year has led me to work with students in Math in grades 2-8.  The middle level is new to me, however, I've worked with many of the students in my caseload as elementary students.  Over time, I've noticed that the missing piece for my gifted students is the ability to communicate their thinking in math, verbally or in writing.  I'm hoping that this book study will help me to develop tools to help my advanced learners show what they truly know!
