“For a teacher, there is no greater experience than that incredible moment when a student just ‘gets it’– that ‘a-ha’ moment when you know that you’ve made a difference. As a mathematics teacher, I devoted my career to helping young learners become more comfortable with mathematics and more passionate about it. As an author, trainer and developer of teaching materials, I do my best to share my enthusiasm with my fellow educators and to create tools to make those ‘a-ha’ moments happen more often. I hope you will enjoy introducing your students to Cross-Number Discovery Puzzles and seeing what a difference it will make!”
