This year, I am forcing myself to not tell Ss things, but more guide & listen to Ss. I had an epiphany today, **This is allowing me to teach the human, not the math. My focus is on the human in front of me instead of the math. It is much more fun & rewarding!**

What are you GREAT at doing? Every teacher has SOMETHING they’re great at. Don’t fight me on this. It’s not about being humble. It’s about owning your awesomeness. What are you GREAT at doing?

Hey I need your geometry help. This is the quad family tree I am teaching this year, but we can’t decide where one arrow should go. Option 1 is what I was planning to teach (and what I am leaning towards), but a student presented option 2 today. What do you think?

Tried ’s cup stacking problem today in Alg I with my section of 6 students. They’re not always motivated, but they were engaged the ENTIRE class period. And then really mad when I told them I didn’t have enough cups to check their answers.

Built a right triangle using student shoes today, then estimated how many shoes we would need for the hypotenuse. Stinky, but fun!

I will announce to my classes today that I have now memorized ALL of the digits of pi. If pressed on the issue, I will admit that I don't yet know them in order.

Color coding is a strategy I don’t think math teachers use enough: color coding parts of a shape and labeling it, highlighting parts of a calculation, etc. It’s a really good visual support for explanations.

I hate the desks I have in my classroom. I really want desks in triplets but there is no way to make it work without tripping over them. I spent an hour trying today. Spam me with your dream classroom desks. Writing a long shot grant tonight.
