Hi. My name is Leslie Odermann, and I teach Title I at Parshall Elementary School. I graduated from Dickinson State University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education and a minor in mathematics. I taught middle school math in New Town for 17 years before coming to teach in Parshall seven years ago.
In the Title I classroom, I use several types of manipulatives to help teach conceptual understanding of mathematics to my students. After using manipulatives, I move my students to the pictorial, and then the abstract level. I also like to use songs and movement to teaching skip counting and other various concepts in math and reading.
I am married and have four children and one grandchild. Three of my children have graduated from Parshall High School and the youngest is in the 6th grade. I enjoy reading, baking, walking, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
