On the last day of school in 2016 one of my students bragged to me that he had completed all his IXL sections for practice before the test. He told me he even took a Snapchat of it. I asked for proof and, voila, it was right there in front of me! I guess for some kids we really are making a difference.
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!
