About the Presenters:

Sandi Stanhope (M.Ed.) worked in Franklin Count, Vermont for over 25 years as a primary classroom teacher, teacher leader, math interventionist and math coach. She has spent more than 15 years digging into the research around the ways in which young children develop early numeracy, additive reasoning, and their overall sense of mathematics. As a result of this focus, she became one of the lead facilitators in the development and implementation of and training for the Primary Number and Operations Assessment (PNOA), a tool used throughout Vermont and elsewhere to identify what young students know and can apply around concepts in early numeracy. In addition, in the role of a primary mathematics consultant, she provides professional development through teaching workshops and graduate level courses. She is a national trainer for OGAP Additive Reasoning, as well as the Operations Manager for the All Learners Network.

Erin Oliver (M.Ed) began her teaching career in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2007. She taught kindergarten through fourth grade there. She transitioned from classroom teaching to focus on intervention because her passion is helping struggling learners build confidence and understanding. For the past 6 years, she has worked as an instructional interventionist and instructional coach. In 2015 she moved back home to Vermont where she continues her work in math intervention and coaching in math classrooms entirely. She supports teachers in analyzing student work, planning math menus, co-teaching, in addition to providing intervention to small groups of students, all involving focus on high leverage concepts. She has been part of the All Learners Network for the past two years.
