This is so wonderful we had to share! Yesterday, Beca Lufi, a Hackett parent and Temple math instructor, started an enrichment math center in Ms Barca's Kindergarten class room! She will come in to the class every 2 weeks and use an array of problem solving techniques to help children think about and work through math problems. If you are a parent at Hackett (or not!) and you have a skill or background that you would like to share with the Hackett school then reach out to us!
