My job is hard. I have had a rough year. Everyday I think of a million things that I could have done better. I can pick myself apart every single day and list a million reasons why I suck. But in the end that is one of the reasons why I love it.
If you asked me what is my favorite genre of books, I would tell you it is self-improvement.
I hate complacency. I could always always always improve.
I saw a post on facebook today that asked you to fill in the blank: Education is... and the first thing that came to mind was exhilarating!
I love that middle school kids are SO difficult. I love that most of them hate math and my daily struggle is not only to teach them but to get them interested in the subject.
I am having a positive moment because my math coach came in the other day and gave me really positive feedback.
My takeaway for this blog post is one of the resources I stumbled onto recently: www. njctl.org. Awesome! Smart Notebook files, Powerpoint files, pdf files, unit plans, classwork/homework. All aligned to common core. Couldn't ask for more!
