"I was at your professional development (PD) yesterday with Newhall and loved it. I went home and four of us spent a couple of hours trying to get the “Rats and cats” problem. We had fun and my a friend got the answer, but could not explain! It is 12 cats, and I attached my work from this morning. I hope you can read it. I am so proud that I figured it out! Thanks for all you do."
