For the past few years ASA has been blessed by a partnership with Aquinas College and Dr. Shari McCarty's mathematics teacher prep classes. During non-COVID years Dr. McCarty's classes would meet onsite for their class, and also spend time working with our students and teachers in classrooms. This past school year we connected Aquinas students with 3rd, 4th and 6th grade students remotely.
This partnership is mutually beneficial in that it gives the Aquinas pre-service teachers hands-on experience teaching and creating engaging math activities while also providing our students with math interventions or enrichments.

In addition to 1-on-1 and small group sessions with our students Aquinas students have created a series of 34d and 4th grade interactive math games for our teachers to use as centers and skills practice.
We look forward to continued partnerships with our Aquinas Math Buddies in the coming years!
