Today marked the day when almost all of our seniors declared which college or university they will be attending next year. Called "Decision Day," it was celebrated with a drum-led march through our back yard, cafeteria, and into our auditorium for a group photo and pizza party. It was enjoyable although a bit haphazard in planning and our students still loved it. We are glad to see them grow up and move on and hope they come back to share their futures with us.
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!
