Navigating Middle Math
Based on years of research, coaching, and application, the High-Impact Math Method & 5-G Coaching process were developed and proven to work. Your teachers will walk into school each day excited for the lesson they've prepared with a research-based structure that they are certain will lead the students to success with the standards. I work with math teachers primarily through our High-Impact Math Teachers membership and professional learning workshop options.
It's not too late to show your students the possibility of math. Empower them with the confidence to defy all odds, think critically, and solve problems...inside the math classroom...and beyond. It's time to get fired up about teaching math again!
Having a Peaceful, Calm, Effective Classroom
Your students are engaged in meaningful discussions, leaning into their individual strengths to support one another through challenges.
Using High-Impact Instructional Strategies
You have a toolkit you can pull from to confidently teach your students using strategies that are proven to help students make major leaps in math (instead of tiny, incremental gains).
Witnessing Individual Student Growth
Each student is making steady gains toward their individual goals. Students feel seen, understood, and empowered.

Professional Learning Workshops
It is possible to be a passionate, effective, hopeful teacher again! When your campus signs up for a workshop, you get ongoing support throughout the year, plus my 5G coaching model programming. I have three core workshop options:
Moving the Middle Math Learner
Knowing and understanding the vertical alignment of math and the unique characteristics of adolescents enables you to combine concepts and skills to bridge the gap for struggling students.
Ownership- Flip the Switch: Getting Students to Own Their Learning
Use learning strategies that encourage students to play active, not passive, roles in their learning; students take more ownership in not only what they learn but how they learn.
Equity - Creating A Community Where All Students Flourish as Mathematicians
Creating an engaging equitable classroom where every child is engaged to be a risk-taker and motivated to participate in their learning.
"Michelle believed in me. Through her coaching, I have been able to implement various instructional strategies. I love teaching again!"
