“My Mom” from Rosie

Hello !

So glad you are here, interested in learning more about the author.

I recently graduated with a Master’s in Math Elementary Education, and will start my Ph.D in the Fall 2017. I take great pleasure at constantly thinking about how I could apply what I learned, not only with elementary students, but also at home, with my kids.

And that is what I share here: what I do at home with my kids to support their mathematical thinking, hoping to help other parents do the same. My daughter is 8, and my son is 5. The pen names they picked? Rosie and Tom.

So… welcome to my blog !  You can click here to read more about why I decided to start writing this blog, and here to read more about how the blog works.

Enjoy !

    So nice to meet you this sunny morning! Thanks for stopping by and Likng my About. One of the best things about joining this blogging world 3 months ago, is the Return Policy that seems indigenous within the process. As in someone Likes something on my site and I get to stroll on over to mee them…and 9 times out of 10, I meet a very intersting person so I can connect with in one or several ways, and see their passion whether it be words, art, photography etc. Seems to me we have one big thing in common….at least I think we do. You have a passion for math (although it seems to be a long seeded passion)….and I’ve discovered a passion for writing poetry (just since February)! You are MUCH younger than me….but that’s okay — I’m in my rejuvenatement period (read my About for an explanation) and still enjoy skipping down the sidewalk, albeit with my grandchildren, kids of my kids! 🙂 So here’s the thing…..I think many people are intimidated by math — I sure was….still am, I guess. I also think many people are intimidated by poetry — just the words “math” and “poetry” can send shivers down some spines — as in EEEEOW! BUT, I think it’s because of the way both are so often taught….painstakingly, tediously, making it WORK instead of a process to enjoy and apply. Right?
    So here’s to enjoying more math and poetry!
    Stop by, meander around….I shall do that more this evening over my glass of wineW

    You got a great blog here. The concept of teaching Math via a blog is wonderful. I will get some tips from your blog for my 5 year old kid. 🙂

    Hehe… that’s lovely. I’m not born in France, but I live in a place that speaks French. While we occasionally accept high school students, we mainly cater to undergrad and graduate students in higher mathematics, and this opens up our perspectives as our students range from nurses, prospective doctors, accountants to education, business, science and engineering students. It’s a really interesting experience. 🙂
