“Allow me to be one of the first to say, WOW, as it relates to the Glad2Teach curriculum and methods. When my son had finished a 45-minute math test in 20 minutes, I looked at him and asked, ‘How do you feel you did?’ He smiled and said, ‘I aced it, Dad…I really did!’ To everyone’s surprise, he was correct. He aced it! Since then he has shown other classmates how he does it.”
-Ronald, Proud Dad
All too often our schools are restricted by the very regulations that are supposed to make them better. Glad2Teach creates different opportunities for learning, recognizing that it is critical to partner with our schools and community to ensure a future filled with hope for our children. We understand that closing the achievement gap is central to this promise.
With this in mind, we are constantly evaluating what we offer, looking for innovative ways to create learning environments that will stimulate and motivate young minds. Our EasyCal programs provide struggling students with a much greater facility in mathematical computation. This not only builds confidence, but also frees their minds to focus on the mathematical reasoning needed to solve problems. Above all, EasyCal is easy to learn.
Try it out for yourself. This Website provides samples of the wide array of our strategies. As you take EasyCal out for a road test, keep in mind that it’s like learning a foreign language; children acquire it much faster than adults. And when they do, they’ll enjoy showing it off to you, and better yet, older siblings.
As children take pride in their mathematical skill, that confidence spills over into other areas of learning. In the end, the child sees him/herself as a better student, and in a deeper sense, as someone worthy of success. This sets the stage for becoming a lifelong learner, a nurturing parent, and a vital member of the community.
In this way, one child – one school at a time, the achievement gap will not only narrow, but become a thing of the past. At Glad2Teach, we are proud to partner with our schools, creating a Cadre of Caring to make this shared vision a reality.
