Today was another Expeditionary Thursday - this time to the Museum of the Moving Image. I don't want to focus on that since - while it was a great trip - it's not that unique to this blog. Instead, here is a photo of what teachers do when we have a "break." My colleagues and I were eating food while one of them was counting the money we got from the students to pay the difference for the field trip (unfortunately it wasn't totally free). You will often see teachers do this in as clandestine a way as possible and still it looks awkward.
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!
