A teacher never stops truly learning. For now, I am targeting certain areas in which I hope to learn and grow most in order to improve as an educator.
Classroom management is one of my biggest areas of focus right now. I know it will take time for me to find my management style which fits best for me and my personality as a teacher, but my goal is for it to be as effective as possible in that all of my students are engaged and excited about math.
I’m realizing more and more how explicit and precise you need to be in a math classroom. It’s very easy for me to blow over little ideas that students may miss, simply because I’m so used to them or assume they know. This is going to be my biggest struggle, but I can see I’m already improving and realizing where I need to be more concrete in my explanations.
