Margie Pearse has spent the past twenty three years as an educator and researcher. Middle school is where she spent the majority of her teaching years, researching, experimenting and crafting lessons, but she also has extensive experience teaching at the elementary level as well. Her educational philosophy can be summed up as such, �Why NOT reinvent the wheel. Yesterday�s lessons will not suffice for students who need to succeed in tomorrow�s world. We need to meet them, not just where they are, but where they need to be. How can I push my students� thinking for that to happen?� She currently coaches teachers and conducts original professional development days on how to transform instructional practices to become effective, well planned and numerate.

Kate Walton has taught at both the elementary and middle school levels for twelve years. Although Kate�s primary passion and expertise is with language arts, she feels Numeracy transcends and is, at its very core, deep, logical thinking, which she has always encouraged in her classroom. She believes that a well crafted lesson and a healthy obsession with creativity are the keys to inspiring students to think deeply. Currently, she too coaches teachers and conducts original professional development days on best practices.
