Math Coach

Hello My Name Is...

Franklin Ave Math Coach's Corner
Welcome to the 2015 - 2016 School Year

 

Hello everyone!

Please allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Melissa Letourneau and I have been assigned as the math coach for Franklin Avenue and Highland Schools.  I am just joining Westfield, coming off of a maternity leave with my third child, Julian, who was born in August. 

For the past 11 years I have worked for Springfield Public Schools.  I spent the first three years as a 4th grade teacher at Lincoln School.  I spent the second three years teaching solely math in a departmentalized 4th and 5th grade setting at Lincoln School.  The last 5 years I was a math coach, working at Gerena School and again at Lincoln School.

As a coach, I have worked with grades K-5 providing support and professional development in developing math content knowledge, unpacking the new MA math standards, implementing the math workshop model, and best practices in math instruction.

Here's to a great school year!
