Educators Respond!
“…just wait until America witnesses what our beautiful, talented and articulate children can accomplish when their teachers are knowledgeable, skilled and hold them in high esteem.”
Iris Carl, past President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

“First Jaime Escalante did it in Stand and Deliver. Now Good Morning Miss Toliver shows how East Harlem teacher Kay Toliver gets her students inspired and motivated.”
Los Angeles Times

“We are actively searching for material to make available to the nearly 400 precollegiate teacher recruitment programs we have identified… Good Morning Miss Toliver is exactly the kind of video production we would like to encourage these programs to show to their budding teachers.”
Andrew Calkins, Executive Director, Recruiting New Teachers, Inc.

“In our training institutes this summer for vertical teams of math teachers, I have been surprised to learn how many teachers already know about Kay Toliver. Her tape is the best resource we have to help teachers fully understand the benefits of ‘hands-on’ teaching techniques.”
Carolyn R. Bacon, O’Donnel Foundation

“Teachers at the middle grades level have expressed their desire for more mathematics programming. I doubt there’s anyone they’d rather bring into their classrooms than Ms. Toliver.”
Bill Meyers, Director, National Educational Telecommunications Association

Testimonials

HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

This stuff makes lessons exciting so they are not just about numbers or just about manipulation, they’re in context. And it doesn’t take a lot of context to get kids excited about doing the other stuff. This makes them want to do it! HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

A. H. Math Resource Teacher

The response to Teacher Talk was very enthusiastic. Our teachers checked out all of the copies within twenty-four hours after the viewing!

The Teacher Talk materials also gave us some great ideas for teaching in teams of four: language arts, social studies, science and math teachers. After seeing the lesson our science teachers said, that’s the way to pull the language arts into our study plans.

A. H., Math Resource Teacher, N. Hollywood, CA

DEAN OF MATHMATICS

You have done a grand job in making the vital connections between school and work, of exploration of real-world uses of math and science, of illustrating relationships between math and daily life, and of making the future real!
DEAN AND PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK

We found lots of ideas in the tapes that we use in our classrooms. Every lesson is like an adventure! And cost-wise, these exercises were extremely effective and fit very well into our district standards. The teachers thought that anybody could do these exercises. This is very important.
In Teacher Talk, there are perfect examples of activities that are both fun and relevant. These activities lend themselves to interdisciplinary use, merging literature, science and mathematics.
