I'm Shannon Kiebler

As a teacher, coach, professional development specialist, and a national mathematics speaker/trainer, I believe in empowering, inspiring and equipping teachers with the mindset, strategies, and tools that they need to effectively grow as mathematics teachers and learners.
Math should make sense.
Math should be fun.

I'm a teacher at my very core and have trained hundreds of teachers just like you with simple, yet transformative strategies.

Using the materials you already have, we can simply transform your lessons so that both the teacher and the student win.
Teachers need simplicity and effectiveness, without hours on the internet.
Students need to be able to access the content and stay engaged.
We can have both.

Teachers Are Able To:

Simplify lesson planning

"I can plan effectively using a quick five-step process. Using a template or sticky notes, I've got this thing!"

Orchestrate powerful classroom discussions

"I can identify the types of thinking I see around the room and then select and sequence the ones that wll provide the best discussion and movement towards our learning goals while building community and efficacy in all of my learners."

choose the right problems

"I can weed through textbook fluff, as well as problems that take away student thinking to select problems worth building concepts from."

Choose less problems

"I can select less problems with confidence!  Dear goodness me I felt like a drill sergeant rushing through all of the problems every day.  Less is more.  Now I understand when it's time to practice a lot of problems and when we're trying to build understanding."

generate and use open questions and prompts

"I get the difference now between an open and a closed question and how a conversation stops or continues based on what and how I ask it."

Anchor learning as an explicit teaching strategy as well as a spiral review

"I can break apart and define the thinking of the day to make it accessible for all students. I can use the key learnings of each day in my unit to help revisit and review concepts."

Students Are Able To:

increase a sense of efficacy

"I can do this!"

Fully Engage in every lesson

"I have something to offer."

Persevere without direct instruction to make sense of mathematics

"I can try something, this is just my rough draft thinking. I can get started and then revise my thinking. I don't need constant teacher help."

Consistently engage in math reasoning

"I can repeat what I heard, add on, make connections, or explain my own thinking."

Reason, compare, & Contrast thinking and methods

"I can engage with your thinking and compare it to my thinking instead of just regurgitating the teacher's ideas."

Use multiple methods

"I know demonstrating multiple methods means I'm flexible in my thinking and I therefore have a stronger foundation."

What are past participants saying?

 "I now look at lessons very differently.  I have never been the "sage on the stage" type of teacher, but this course really allowed me to bring inquiry into my curriculum much more than I had previously."

 "I feel like our students are having a better undersatnding because they are doing the thinking. I love seeing student confidence improve. I have fully committed to helping teachers implement this workshop's ideas in our building."

 " The 5 step lesson planning approach is so helpful and is a concise way to create a lesson plan.  I also enjoyed the videos to observe actual teaching with the strategies.  I learned student engagement and interest will increase when you begin to change your instruction to a more inquiry based approach."

 " My goal in taking this workshop was to design lesson plans in which I could engage more of my struggling students. I wanted to build their math confidence.  I have learned all of that! Most importantly, I'm not the hero in the classroom and they've taken ownership of their learning."
