Every year the day before Thanksgiving is a fun, enjoyable time for our Crew students. We come together and share our thanks of each other and those on the outside who has supported us along the way. Today was no different: all the food and all the joy together made this a wonderful feast. Our students came to Crew early and set up sternos, home-cooked food, drinks, and more to have fun and enjoy each other's company. I was particularly impressed when a few students thanked me for things I didn't expect (especially the ones who are more difficult). I appreciate it and returned the favor later. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you can live with abundance like we had today.
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!
