|My passion is teaching numeracy within organizations. I train people how to UNDERSTAND and USE the number reports and information they receive, both financial and nonfinancial with no math, no bookkeeping and no jargon. In the process, I will save you a considerable amount of money.
Here are the benefits from doing numeracy training within your organization:
• Catch potential problems earlier so they can be fixed earlier
I train people about numeracy in a number of group formats, usually doing several session trainings over a period of several weeks. I have a dozen e-books about how to achieve numeracy and its benefits within your organization I’m also developing a range of video products delivered over the Internet.
My background is as an accountant and I love taking accounting and financial reporting and stripping away all of the confusing terminology and bad explanations so that people can not only understand this stuff. But your staff use many more numbers than just financial ones. Imagine the benefits when you show them how to apply their number knowhow in a practical way to their role in the organization. So I also help you establish a variety of metrics for your organization beyond just financial ones.
Like it or not, numbers and money are an important part of our society, and yet most people’s education in financial literacy is practically nonexistent. I can help your staff understand and use financial and nonfinancial information effectively, according to their role. http://www.highspin.com for more information and inspiration!

The Montessori Learning Garden is a new endeavor. The goal is to develop a strong link between Montessori education and outdoor education.
The ‘school” building is not institutional. Rather it has the feel of a home away from home. It is a peaceful, welcoming, environment with stimulating Montessori materials. There are comfortable nooks where the children can have privacy, play musical instruments, be surrounded by plants, play with pets, or browse through books. Children have ample art supplies, access to the kitchen, laundry facilities, and bright windows.
Outside we have an outdoor classroom and garden where the children can learn first hand about the living world.
