More than 40 teachers and administrators attended the event at the university’s Visalia campus. Rojas quoted the participants as saying:

  • “I feel rejuvenated. Thank you for all of the new strategies along with reminders of the old!
  • “It was refreshing and encouraging to reach my EL students better.”
  • “I love attending workshops that provide strategies that I can implement in the classroom right away.”

The all-day event was part of the two-year grant initiative between the university and the school district. It’s designed to assist K-6 teachers in building confidence in their math teaching strategies.
