Today we took part in our last all-crew day intensives with students I have worked with for four years. I was pleasantly surprised that almost all of our students showed up (21 out of 23). While the day itself turned south quite quickly (a story can't really share here), the vast majority of students were quite kind and I had some great conversations with them about college, taxes, and just general things in the world. I look forward to the rest of our time together this year.
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!
