Hi and welcome to my blog! My name is Carollee Norris and I am passionate about mathematics education! I believe deeply that students need to encounter mathematics in a way that allows them to make sense of it, to understand concepts, to manipulate numbers freely. I want students (and teachers) to love mathematics as much as I do, and that happens when they really get to get “messy” with the math.
After being first a classroom teacher and then the Numeracy Support Teacher for SD#60 in Fort St. John, BC, Canada, I am now a Mathematics Education Consultant working out of Comox, BC. I have been a sessional instructor for Simon Fraser University (SFU) teaching Designs for Learning Mathematics: Elementary. I served on the executive of the BC Association of Mathematics Teachers (BCAMT) for many years and present frequently at conferences and workshops around the province and in the US.
I hope you find some of my ideas interesting and useful, and I would love to hear from you! (My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org)
