What's the Story Behind the Logo?

Jenny from Art with Jenny K put together a linky a couple of months ago and like usual, I am a little late to the party!  Better late than never!
Jenny wants to know the story behind our logos.  I thought it would be fun to link up since the story behind my company's name and my logo holds a special place in my heart.

My Teacher Hero

Bright Idea: Using Graph Paper as a Math Accommodation

As a special education teacher, I work with a lot of kiddos with tracking issues that impact their reading, writing, and math skills.  In addition, many of them also struggle with fine motor skills and have larger than typical handwriting.  

One of the ways that I help my students during math is to have them use graph paper when solving problems.  

Handing out graph paper for your students to use to work through problems is a very simple way to help them keep their numbers aligned correctly.
