Mathematics and Well-being: It’s Not About the Nail
Presented by Tom Boland
Tom has taught grades K – 8 and spent several years in Special Education. He is a published author, most recently publishing Leaps and Bounds Toward Mathematical Understanding, Grades 1/2, co-authored in 2015 and published by Nelson Education, and Mathematical Models for Teaching; Reasoning Without Memorization, co-authored with Dr. Ann Kajander and published in 2014 by Canadian Scholar’s Press.
It is Tom’s belief that ALL children deserve a safe and positive school experience, and that is the foundation of his most recent work. Together with colleagues Lori Carson and Dr. David Tranter, Tom is working to support teachers as they confront the ever increasing demands of simultaneously promoting well-being while doing all they can to support academic achievement.
