Teachers of Mathematics - Making the Magic Happen

I want to boast and brag about YOU to YOU!

I want to brag and boast about your:
collegiality, professionalism, creativity and courageousness as teachers of mathematics
thoughtful, honest reflection about your math teaching in our recent meetings
continual willingness to consider a multitude of possibilities to support student learning
'A-ha' moments .

We have a very long list of what we are doing well!

As I am preparing for MLATS I have been looking at photos of student work and collecting additional work samples. These samples are excellent evidence of the way we support our students to be mathematicians - communicating, making mistakes, having fun, being challenged and seeking to understand!

Go you good things!
