Outreach Manager in Manitoba

Laurie Wagner
Numbers always do what they’re supposed to do!  This is why Laurie has always had an enjoyment of math. As a student, Laurie loved school, as much for the socializing as for the academics!  Being an avid reader and lover of mystery stories, Laurie always thought of math problems as a mystery to be solved. She went to work as a detective to decipher answers to long division questions and figured out problems in chemistry (the more complex the better), but her greatest love was - and still is - geometry. Triangles, circles and squares – oh my! As a teacher of  Grades 3, 4 and 5 students, Laurie had never found a math resource that she enjoyed teaching and one that her students enjoyed as well. She felt her students were not making the progress they could/should be…until the day she attended a JUMP Math PD five years ago.  Laurie knew immediately that this was what she needed to instill enjoyment and confidence into her students’ math learning. Her students are all now “mathletes” and tell her that they like that she teaches math so they can understand it. Last year Laurie’s grade 3 and 4 class had the highest math scores in the Winnipeg School Division - that’s JUMP Math.  Laurie enjoys traveling and spending time with her family and friends.  Her favourite number is 5 – the number of years she’s been using JUMP Math!
