You want to improve, but at your own pace. You need a guide to follow and clear action steps to take. You need the support of a community. A place to ask questions, to be celebrated and encouraged. Never judged.
It’s time to say goodbye to trying to figure it all out yourself.
It’s time to say goodbye to feeling overwhelmed by all the content.
It’s time to get empowered. To learn. And to grow into the math teacher you want to be.
This membership is for you.

AVAILABLE TO ANNUAL MEMBERS ONLY. Not included for monthly paying members or 6 month paying members.
Summer trainings, book studies, and webinars are part of your membership! Teachers or districts pay more than the cost of the membership for just these trainings. These trainings include recordings of presentations I've done nationally, all included in your membership at no additional cost!
How can we support students with unfinished learning? How do we identiy our Tier 1-3 students? What do we do once they are identified? This bonus includes support for the top 7-8 standards your students need the most. You'll receive aligned intervention materials, as well as Genius Squad support materials for lessons in previous grades.
See video above for more info. Each grade is filled with activities just for your grade, aligned to your units, aligned to your standards, aligned to your curriculum.
You want immediate, implementable ideas you can use in your classroom right now. You want better math lessons that work - for all your students. You want to feel confident about what you teach and how you teach it. Most of all, you want to know what you’re doing will actually help your students grow as mathematicians.

Are you ready to feel more confident and know you’re teaching math better than ever? My videos help you “get it” much faster than trying to go it alone.
"I have grown in my approach to teaching. I have become a much better math teacher. I love the inquiry approach of the Genius Squad. I was bored and my students were even more bored when I used to model the skill. Now, we work collaboratively to create understanding. I also am more aware of the continuum of understanding of my students. Even if one of my students is not understanding everything they can still feel empowered by what they do know and can explain instead of feeling defeated."-- Claire A. 1st Grade, CA
Founder, Speaker, Author, Teacher
I believe every student and every teacher, no matter their circumstances, can not only succeed but can THRIVE in the math classroom.
Join me inside the Math Genius Squad to find out just how far you can GROW!
Why should you learn from me? Simply put, I’m the best.
I didn't grow up loving math nor believing I could do it. I grew to love it and grew in my belief I was capable of being not only a good mathematician but a great math teacher.
Somewhere along the way I fell in love with math and want to bring that same love of math to you and your students.
Just imagine, if you love what I give for free, how much more would you love what you pay for? The membership breaks off into separate communities, so there is a separate Facebook group for each grade. My goal is to serve each grade level BETTER. Our main Facebook group stays intact and I continue to serve you there, but more of my energy goes to serving the teachers in these subgroups. If our membership isn't a good fit for you right now, it's ok! You can stay in our Facebook group, I'd love to see you there. Members will have many more benefits.
You have access to the materials and videos for the lifetime of your membership, as long as it is in good standing. Slide decks, jamboards, etc., that are downloaded continue to be yours even after you leave the membership, but you will no longer receive revisions, additions, etc.
While sharing is caring, it isn't so with single use licenses. In fact it's in violation of the terms of your membership. Your membership covers one license, one classroom of students. If you would like to be a team leader and go through the video learning, then share your learning with others, I would encourage that! However, you may not share the videos, printables, or digital assets with other non-members. I'd love to have them in the group! Please invite them. I very much appreciate your understanding in this.
This membership is set up to be about community AND support. If you are only looking for resources, I will be selling parts of the unit planning resources through my website store and Teachers Pay Teachers.
Individual membership rates do not change as long as your membership is continous and in good standing. Bulk enrollments, such as school, team, or district enrollments are subject to change based on bulk enrollment changes and price increases.
No problem! Just let me know and we can switch your membership over to the new grade level. Restrictions do apply to the 6 month or annual plan depending on when a change is being made. If you are at the end of your enrollment, changes may require a prorated fee.
Each grade level access requires it's own membership. Coaches, support staff, combo teachers, and specialists should contact me directly so we can figure out the best plan for you. I REALLY believe in the power of instructional coaching and I want teams to be successful. Doing the membership together will offer the greatest results.
No! Because this membership is about professional development, not merely resources, many districts and schools are purchasing these memberships for individuals, grade level teams, etc. If you choose to pay for it personally, it qualifies as an educator tax deduction.
Just send me an email letting me know your school is paying. I can send you the person in charge information and an invoice. I'll need a purchase order to give you a seat in the membership. Once I have this, you are in! Some schools are even going "halfsies' with teachers. They pay half, the teacher pays half.
Bulk enrollment rates begin at groups of 8 teachers or more. Bulk rates can apply to the entire district. For example, if School A enrolls and School B, their enrollment numbers work together for the largest possible discounted rate. Full district options are available, as well as full implementation plans to aid you in your use of the assets inside the Math Genius Squad. Please contact me: Shannon@empowerconsulting.org to discuss your specific needs.
I'm convinced you'll love this community so much, you'll never want to leave. However, I know sometimes circumstances are beyond our control. While I don't issue refunds, you may stop your membership at any time. You will need to notify me of your choice to cancel before the next billing occurs. You will have access to the month's content through the date of the next billing cycle.
I've told you all the reasons I think the Math Genius Squad is right for you. Now I'm going to let some squad members, teachers just like you, tell you impact it has had on their teaching.
The resources from the 1st grade Math GEnius Squad have been incredibly helpful to me! I appreciate the unit videos to guide my planning, the slides that save me time creating lessons, and the skills I am learning about how to support my students as they develop the ability to explain their thinking. These have all been so helpful and will be the foundation of my math instruction moving forward.

The slides are also helping my students engage with learning and have concrete understanding. These materials are my lifeline.

I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work! I really thought I was a decent math teacher before, but now....wow!!
Every night, I put my earbuds in and watch your videos while I'm packing lunchboxes and cleaning my kitchen. And every day I've got jaws dropping and standing ovations after class!! Yesterday, I overheard three boys saying math class is more fun than recess. YESSSS!
