My name is Chase Orton, and I am passionate about creating math classrooms that are engaging, inspiring, and productive for both teachers and students.
To create these math classrooms, I provide a variety of services to further the professional development of math teachers and school leaders. As an independent consultant, coach, and collaborator, I offer customized workshops, seminars, lesson studies, and coaching for teachers at all grade levels (K-12).
I am a lead author of MathLinks, a comprehensive middle school math curriculum. I’m a master coach for Illustrative Mathematics. I’ve presented workshops at regional and national math conferences and gave an Ignite! talk at CMC South in the fall of 2016. I have 12 years of experience as a classroom teacher, math department chair, and instructional leader. I currently hold a clear teaching credential in California for mathematics.
All of the services I offer are customizable to meet the specific needs at your site. You can find out more about my philosophy and services here. You can find out about lesson study, it’s effectiveness, and why I encourage you to bring my work to your sites here.
