Every once in a while after a long day/week/month my co-Crew leader and I decide to relax a bit and bond with our students so they feel like more of a community. Since they have been completing college work almost non-stop for the past few weeks we decided to use this Friday for exactly that. Here you can see tow of my students playing a game I introduced to them 4 years ago: Blokus. They are smiling and enjoying themselves in a way they don't always get to. I'm glad we have days like these.
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!
