Mrs. Jodi McKee

I would like to thank Mrs. Jodi McKee.  Jodi teaches mathematics, social studies, and science in the fourth grade.  She has recently written a grant to the Nebo Foundation and received $600.00 to purchase balance balls and drum sticks.  These hands-on materials allow teachers to combine physical education activities with the mathematics core standards.  The program is called Academic Beats.  Teachers are reinforcing mathematics through rhythm and movement and it is a fun instructional approach that produces results.  This program is based on the philosophy that students learn by doing.  Thank you Mrs. McKee, for helping us to become better mathematics teachers!
