One of the various roles I play at school is as a member of the Committee on Culture and Character. We advise and make policies related to how our school functions and deals with interpersonal interaction. One of the great things we do is make sure students know when they are being commended so today we sent out various emails to students we thought had been demonstrating our values nicely. I got a chance to shout out one of my students for helping others in class. It was quite nice.
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!
