In order to meet our Work Plan Goal of improving our mathematics instruction and outcomes, our leadership has decided to dedicate a lot of time to bring coaches from our math curriculum (College Prep Math, or CPM) to work with us on improving what we do on a daily basis. They are observing our classes, running workshops, and debriefing with us to help us understand what we are doing and how it can be better. Based on the one workshop I participated in today, the questions they are raising are definitely important and I can't wait to think about them more!
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!
