SMS Math Interventionist Beneficial In New Implementation

Heather Henley, SMS Math Interventionist, works with her students to use critical thinking and problem solving skills as they master the mathematics learning standards.  Her own ability to analyze data and problem solve has been very beneficial as BISD introduced a new online classroom resource in Spring 2015.  The students first complete an online Renaissance Star Math screening assessment.   The CompassLearning test translator uses the results of the screener to build a learning path of math activities individualized for each student.

In Spring 2015,  Heather assisted Brenda Mesa, Secondary Math Coordinator, and  Karen Teeters, Online Learning Specialist, by volunteering to pilot this new resource in her classroom.  Her work to identify possible problem areas led to a smooth transition into Fall 2015 and is much appreciated.   Math teachers and students at  BISD middle schools are currently monitoring data and progress as the students complete the online self-paced activities.
