Today was the big day for my Crew: their first college applications went through. We had designated a special day while the 11th graders were completing the PSAT so it would be just us on one wing of the building, all supporting each other to make sure we get the CUNY application done. We had a number of roadblocks today (including the CUNY server being incredibly slow) but we got through it. While not all students completed their applications, they are in a much better position to understand what they need to do now.
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
