The role of Math Specialist is to support and enrich students in the area of mathematics based on individual student needs. The Math Specialist coaches teachers in best practices in math instruction, including differentiation, guided math groups, and utilizing mathematical discourse during lessons. As a team with teachers, the Math Specialist uses data to make sound instructional decisions to help students succeed in math. At Smith School, we are fortunate to have two math tutors to assist the Math Specialist to meet the needs of students by taking small groups or individual students for math support as well as work in classrooms to support both teachers and students.
