Our Math Coaches

May 26, 2014

​One of the components of Math Momentum is a math coaching model. A math coach is a teacher that works with the other teachers in Chinook schools to help them with their mathematics instruction. Our coaches have been facilitating workshops on professional development days and providing follow-up coaching to each teacher right in their classroom. This model allows teachers to incorporate what they learn at professional development days into their classroom teaching practice. Teachers are supported by observing their coach and working closely with them to plan and teach math lessons together.

We have a six math coaches that work with all of our kindergarten to grade 8 math teachers. Two of our coaches work with our Hutterian schools and we have four half time coaches that work with the remaining schools. These half time coaches are also half time teachers.

Renae Harkess and Sharon Funk are the math coaches that work with all our colony schools. They provide coaching and support in the areas of balanced literacy and student services to these schools in addition to their support in math.

Carolyn Lepage is our coach for the North West group of schools. She provides math coaching support to the following schools; Abbey, Cabri, Gull Lake, Hazlet, Tompkins, Burstall, Leader, Fox Valley, and Success. Carolyn also teaches kindergarten at Leader school.

Curtis Biem is our coach for the Swift Current and area group of schools. He provides math coaching support to the following schools; Oman, O.M. Irwin, Ashey Park, Hodgeville, Vanguard, and Ponteix. Curtis also teaches Grade 7 at O.M. Irwin school.

Tami Reynolds is our coach for the Southern group of schools. She provides math coaching support to the following schools; Consul, Eastend, Frontier, Shaunavon Public, Shaunavon High School, Sidney Street, MCCHS, and Val Marie. Tami also teaches Grade 4 at Consul school.
