  1. Hi, I am a 2nd grade teacher and my school has just decided to adopt the Singapore program. We have a couple of teachers who would like to know if there are any schools in the Denver, CO area who use the Singapore method, but do not use Math in Focus? We’re looking to observe and get a little more information. Thanks! Roma

    • Congratulations, your school has made an excellent choice in curriculum, of course, I’m biased.;-)
      I know of several schools that are using Primary Mathematics, many of which I’ve worked directly, be and would happy to help arrange a visit and debrief about what your teachers observe. Feel free to email at Cassyt (at) gmail (dot) com.
