About this Campaign

 My name is Mrs. Vernetti and I'm the Math Coach at Pleasant Hill.  Over the past few years, our little mustangs have been broadening their math number sense and fluency.  Some of our activities have involved resources generated by the brilliant math educator, Greg Tang.  You can learn more about him at this website: https://gregtangmath.com.


We have the privilege of welcoming Mr. Tang this fall at Pleasant Hill School where he will invest in all students from kindergarten through fifth grade.  The kids will learn transformational math thinking, but we'd like to provide parents the same opportunity to learn from him as they work with their children at home in support of the math transformation happening here at school.

Here's a description from Greg's professional development page:

Parent Workshops - In just one hour, Greg makes sense of new and unfamiliar teaching methods by focusing on three important aspects of effective math instruction: visualization, reasoning and number sense. Parents come away with an instant appreciation of visual models, number bonds, and the work our teachers are doing, and in a stunning turnaround, even the most vocal critics become supportive and enthusiastic about learning more. Greg’s parent workshops are some of the most important work he does.

Would you consider helping us raise the funds necessary to host Greg Tang for a special Parent Night?  All will be invited, but we especially hope those of you who donate will be able to join us on Wednesday evening, November 13, 2019.  Thank you so much!
