Much of what we do as teachers is within the confines of the four walls of our classrooms. Attending a professional development workshop not only gives teachers an opportunity to collaborate with other educators but an opportunity to further develop their craft and grow professionally.

The Routty Math Teacher provides professional development at state and national conferences, as well as, for both schools and school districts. I would love to prepare and present a learning opportunity to fit the needs of your teachers.

I do have limited availability during the school year; however, I am available for a variety of summer professional development experiences. For more information or to set-up a time to discuss your needs, please complete the following form.

Workshops are available in full day and half day formats.

Current Workshops Include:

  • Embedding the Process Standards into Cognitively Demanding Mathematical Tasks (Full Day only)
  • Number Talks: Strategies for the Mental Toolbox
  • Problem Solving: It’s More than Just Solving Problems!
  • STAAR Review Make ‘n’ Take (currently available for Grades 4 and 5)*

* The costs for a make ‘n’ take workshop will vary based on the needs of the workshop group.

Workshop Costs:

  • Full Day- $1,000 (6-hour training session + a 30 to 60-minute lunch if desired)
  • Half Day- $550* (3-hour training session)
  • Materials Fee (if needed)**

* Travel expenses, such as transportation and accommodations, for locations outside of the greater Austin area are additional.

** The materials fee is based on the number of workshop participants. The workshop fee includes materials for 12 participants. Materials for additional participants will be billed based on the total number of participants at $10 a person.

Access to a projector and document camera are necessary for each workshop and should be provided by the workshop site. I will provide my own laptop.
