Due to extreme weather conditions at the exact time of travel for students/teachers, the mayor and the chancellor decided to cancel school on Thursday. While this is definitely one of the more favorite actions for students, it is really the teachers who get the true break. I had time to watch a movie, make pancakes, bake cookies, and get some more work done on my tenure portfolio so my weekend is a bit more relaxed. It was really useful and productive while being restful and relaxing. Thanks, weather!
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!
