Feedback from previous Mathematics workshops

I just want to say what a wonderful facilitator Lena is, she discussed the topic with enthusiasm and great examples – hoping I will be half as good as she is when I start teaching others. (Looking forward to doing more topics with her). We had the pleasure of taking part in the mathematics in-service yesterday and it confirmed the experiences I already do, gave me the language to use and ideas to extend, as well as opening up my eyes to other ideas and ways to encourage critical thinking and promote exploration with a focus on mathematics.
