"I immediately knew CenterStage Math was for my classroom. I love the compact storage design. Even better, I don’t have to gather materials or set anything up–everything is ready to go–the activity cards are already laminated, the whiteboards helps with classroom management, and all the manipulatives I need are included! The picture icons on the student activity cards provide the ESL/ELL support that some of my students need."

During her 30 year career as an educator, conference speaker, and advocate for good first teaching, Miriam has led initiatives that have improved teacher effectiveness and successfully boosted reading achievement in high-need schools.

"I created CenterStage Literacy to give teachers an answer to this important question: What are the other students in my class doing while I am working with a small group? These research based literacy centers provide students with many authentic reasons to read, write, and practice key literacy skills already introduced by the teacher."
