Marcey Walsh was the keynote at the Detroit Area Council of Teachers of Mathematics Elementary Mini-Conference
in March. Evaluations from all participants were extremely positive. Marcey had this diverse group of mathematicians
focused, engaged,laughing and learning! I would highly recommend Marcey Walsh for presentations and workshops.

Mathematically yours,

"This year our DACTM K-6 Dinner Conference was attended by nearly one hundred current and future teachers. Attendees began the evening by selecting one of six work sessions. This was followed by a very nice dinner. The keynote session that followed dinner was an exciting energy lift for everyone after a long day of school.

Marcey Walsh burst upon the room with contagious energy. Marcey’s actions and explanations offered an interesting look at why students should not be asked to sit perfectly still when they are thinking and solving math problems. She talked about, and demonstrated, a wide variety of kinetic actions that can help students think and be creative while they are exploring problems. She had us out of our seats and participating in problem solving. It was fun and thought provoking.

Bill Gates is known to rock back-and-forth when in he is thinking deeply about a problem. Imagine if a teacher had told Bill to sit still! Marcey’s “Move ‘Em or Lose ‘Em!” keynote was a demonstration of how kinesthetic activities can help students learn and problem solve" . Dick Sietz, DACTM
