Just the Beginning

Spring break is just about over and I have spent a lot of time reading other people's blogs over the last week and found a wealth of information.  Thank you to all of my fellow middle school math teachers out there who have shared your ideas!

I am not sure yet what I want this blog to become, but sometimes the best things are those that you do not plan.  Crazy talk for a teacher, I know!  

I teach middle school math and have struggled to adjust to the Saxon methodology of teaching math.  I've learned that I am a linear learner and like to see the progression of an idea from the beginning to the end.  I also like to see the whole picture.  Having the ideas chopped into small fragments has sent my brain into a tailspin.  The year has been a learning year of "what not to do", so my classroom will be going through changes for next year and whatever I can do for the rest of the year.  

I was hoping that blogging about my experiences trying to learn a few new tricks, might help other teachers.  So, my journey will begin.  Stay tuned...

  1. I discovered your blog a year after you've started it through 4mulafun during a forced "timeout," worked my way back to here… this has been a DELIGHTFUL journey in reverse, full of fun and challenging adventures that have been stimulating my own thinking. THANK YOU for sharing!
