Briarcliff Manor’s Todd Elementary Is Exemplary School For Singapore Math®

Todd Elementary School in Briarcliff Manor recently was selected to host Marshall Cavendish executives, who observed how the Singapore Math® program and its digital component are used in the United States.

Fourth-grade teachers Lorraine McDermott and Melissa Magliulo’s class hosted the visit Nov. 12. Visitors included Peng Yim Siew, CEO of Times Publishing Group, who traveled from Singapore to observe the class, as well as Vivian Cheng, area director of Marshall Cavendish, part of Times Publishing Group.

Principal Nadine McDermott said the executives wanted to visit the school to learn about different strategies the teachers are using in class and implement those best practices in schools around the world. Although many elementary schools in the United States use the Singapore Math® program in their curricula, Siew said he chose Todd Elementary School for his visit because he noticed the teaching of the material is consistent and allows students to think logically.
