Saxon Consultant Comes to Town


January 2 was a busy Inservice Day! Although it was the first day back to school after the holidays, elementary teachers arrived at Raymond L. Young with smiling faces for a refresher presentation by Agatha Kent, a consultant for Saxon Math.

She discussed how the program should be implemented to insure success for the students. All components in each grade level were covered and tips were shared that might make organizing the daily lessons easier.

Many teachers were interested in the Problem-Solving Package which is a weak area for students across the district. I believe this component would increase our scores and be a welcomed addition to the existing program. I have shared my concerns with the Central Office.

Ms. Kent eagerly answered all questions posed by the audience and shared that the Saxon website would be a good place to visit. http://www.saxonpublishers.com/ Several handouts for each grade level were available. If you did not attend, please see a teacher from your school.

This was a presentation that teachers from several schools expressed an interest in attending.
Sometimes clarification after a program has been used helps in making adjustments and fine tuning. Thank you for your participation!
