|Adventures in Learning|
Hello there! My name is Kathryn Middlestead and I am the Middle School Science and Computer Science Teacher as well as K-12 Math Specialist for Crescent School in Joyce, Washington. I am currently certified by the states of Virginia and Washington to teach Middle and High School Science and Math. I am also a former Math Fellow for the State of Washington as well as a member of the Math Leadership team charged with making the transition to the common core standards as smooth as possible. I truly believe that the common core standards are going to benefit our kids and make them more successful in life. Teaching children how to think, persevere and problem solve creates a positive climate for learning. We need to challenging pupils’ ideas, inspire them, be more innovative with lessons and practice, and differentiate according to our student’s abilities and interests.
