The thankfulness continues.
I am thankful to be in a profession where I have the opportunity to constantly learn new things and try new strategies. I am thankful to be at a school where I can learn from others. I'm thankful for my grade level and for the support I receive from the other math chair.
Today I presented on math strategies for staff development. It went fairly well and others were appreciative of new strategies and planning time.
Side note: I didn't teach math last year. The two years prior to that? I taught stations in an inclusion classroom with the special ed kiddos. Before that? A traditional classroom.
However, I've attended lots of math trainings over the past few years because I didn't want to fall out of practice. I guess they've paid off!
As frustrating as these math trainings are, I do appreciate that I have the opportunity to attend them to learn more information (and be paid to learn).
