This week and next students are preparing for their two-day midterm. In order to do so I am having them write goals for themselves on a weekly basis. I appreciate the honesty of this student's reflection on his goal and hope that it means he will actualize on his goal for next week. Unfortunately, he is frequently absent without notes so I'm not sure if he will.
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!
