Today was the first day of the last Student-Led Conferences (SLCs) I will have with my current Crew. I've been working with them for four years and - through trials and tribulations - we are almost at their graduation. Despite many many tough, aggravating, and downright crazy times, it has been a wonderful learning experience for them as well as me. I had a great conversation with a student today about his future and may have made some connections that will prove really fruitful for his future. I can't wait for more conversations tomorrow to see how they want to deal with their futures.
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!
