Congratulations! What grade were you in before? I teach 7th grade math, and I’ve taught a little 6th grade before. Let me know if you’d like to chat about it! Especially now, I love learning more about what people are doing in there classrooms!

Well, I will be student teaching so the post is kind of misleading.😅 I’m currently a middle school para-educator finishing up my degree to become a teacher! However I am still open for a chat if you are . I’m sure I’ll have questions and other things to share.

Congrats. You will love 6th grade❤️. Do you know your curriculum yet? What's making you most anxious?

I am most anxious about how to get students to see that we are all capable to do math and it’s not just for “math people.”

I am really entertainined by reading articles on CEOs raises compared to average employees salaries. Especially if the articles have quotes from CEOs, it's like they rationalize their 3 million annual increase in double talk and buzz words. Meanwhile, everyone in accounting will be lucky if they get a cost of living adjustment outside of the normal pay increase.

We work very hard to do what is best for these students. It is exhausting and frustrating to constantly be undermined by administrative policies that push these students through the system. We deal with a lot of cheating, behavioral issues, and some teachers/parents doing homework for their students just so they can pass the class. We are all failing our students! How can we work together to correct all of the wrongs and make them right?

Does anyone have suggestions for an online math platform? I anticipate that my time online with students will be spent introducing concepts, models and procedures and doing my best to facilitate discussions around these.

I wonder what follow up opportunities I can provide for k-5 students to practice, get help, and provide me some data.

Is there a platform that has problem solving opportunities, quality videos aligned to the problems, and some assessment opportunities?

Most of my Algebra 2 students are still doing works remotely from home. My Algebra team is relying on DeltaMath for assignments and tests, and kids are completing them within minutes of posting (spend like 30+ seconds per problem on average). I decided to ask for works from kids as part of the assignment grades, and to my surprise (not really), kids are using apps and just copying to the teeth. My admins will likely make me stop giving 0 to these assignments. Is this a battle worth fighting for?
