Meet Sherri Adler
Geographic areas served: U.S., international
Sherri Adler is available for training for teachers, math coaches, curriculum specialists, and administrators. She also offers consulting on Singapore Math® implementation and math curriculum selection.
Since she first started teaching Singapore Math® programs in 2001, Adler has become passionate about professional development for mathematics instructors. She has taught in in public, private and charter school systems. This experience, along with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education, has given her a personable training style and the opportunity to train numerous schools - and thousands of teachers - adopting Singapore Math® curriculum in the United States, Europe, Central America, and South America.
When developing a training plan for a school, Adler will customize her program based on their budget and unique needs. Some schools and districts need a 2-day workshop while others will support their educators with a year-long professional development program. Although she is available for all elementary levels, her specialty is Pre-K through 3rd grade.
“Sherri provided a highly valuable parent presentation for our community," says Kathleen Dunne Millar, the director of lower school at Tesseract in Paradise Valley, Arizona. "The teachers raved about her enthusiasm and asked when she could return because the days of training flew by so fast. I observed our teachers implementing the strategies they learned from Sherri the very next day.”
Adler has a number of publications on the Singapore approach. These include several books which she co-authored, two Singapore Math® intervention programs and the official training manual for the State of California for Primary Mathematics Standards Edition. She also helped create the Pre-K and Kindergarten lessons for EngageNY, a Common Core aligned curriculum.
Alder formed the company SingaporeMathSupport in 2014 to support schools as they explore Singapore Math® programs and begin implementing with their students. She also continues to lecture for the Bureau of Education and Research (BER), The Institute of Educational Development (IED) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
