Meaningful Moments in MATHEMATICS
Welcome! Thanks for stopping by my site. I was inspired to write down my Mathematical musings by several other Math educators who have generously shared their stories with me either through workshops, blogs, Twitter, or through publications and have inspired my love of Mathematics and shaped my practice.
I have taught Kindergarten through Grade Five in both Richmond and now the Surrey School District. This year I have two roles. As an Early Numeracy Teacher, I work in an inner-city school with four amazing primary teachers supporting their students in Mathematics. My other position is as the Changing Results for Young Learners Numeracy Advocate. In this role I work with 31 teachers who are participating in a inquiry-based initiative.
Similar to the important reflection time the teachers in the CR4YM will be provide, I felt it was important that I also take the time to reflect on my roles and Mathematical moments. I know that through writing I am able to deeply reflect, looking at things from multiple perspectives and ultimately moving my thinking forward. My hope is that those visiting this site/reading my blog will be able make connections, wonder about their own practice, potentially be sparked to try something new by seeing an idea, and ultimately continue to grow and learn as a Mathematics educators.
I believe that when we work together we can be better. We can improve our students' dispositions towards Math and increase their thinking and understanding.
