Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!
My name is Liz Durkin. This will be my 15th year of teaching, with my previous experience teaching math and science in 5th and 6th grade. The math intervention team has tripled in size over the summer! The math interventionist team consists of myself and new team members Greg Durant and Jessica Cimaroli.
Our goal in math intervention is to increase student growth through targeted instruction based on individual student needs. Three times a year, students take the NWEA MAP test, which helps us see how they compare with students in-district, statewide and nationally. We use the results of these tests to determine which students may benefit from additional small group support. These tests also allow us to see what specific math skills a student is lacking mastery in. By working with students in small groups and tailoring instruction to fill gaps in understanding, we aim to increase student growth and mastery in fundamental math concepts..

I'm looking forward to a great year full of wonderful growth!
