I am starting my third year of teaching in a small town in Iowa. I am really starting to appreciate the ups and even the unavoidable downs of being a teacher. I am loving it even more, as I have branched out and began to find incredible resources to help me improve.
I want to be a breath of fresh air for my students. I love math, but my real goal is to just build that awesome feeling of curiosity in my students and teach them to always go after the answers to their questions. How does everything work? How do you make a wind turbine? If you freeze a food item, is its aging process frozen, so you have just as long to eat it after you take it out of the freezer as you did when you bought it? I don't know these things. And so I shall learn, and maybe a lesson can be created out of it.
