The MATH CAMP kids BEG to go to!
Introducing this year's most fun and effective math experience! As educators, we find that students' learning development can stall and even regress over the summer. Kids are often sent to a variety of summer camps that focus on athletics and physical activities, but mathematical thinking gets left in last year's classroom. As a result, they fall behind in their next grade and struggle to get back up to speed. Keep your kids sharp! At Tang Math camp, they will use actual math skills in real world situations while developing a deeper sense of numbers in a really fun way. Stay smart with Tang Math Summer Camp!

Kayla is the University Park Elementary Talented and Gifted Specialist. After teaching 4th/5th grade math in Plano for five years, she taught fourth grade at Bradfield Elementary for three years before finding her passion for gifted education at UP. She holds her masters in Elementary Education and HPISD/SMU partnership endorsement for Gifted Education.
