I teach sixth grade math at a wonderful middle school. We area a Title One school, which for my non-teacher friends means that our students are from families that have low socioeconomic standing.
My sweet sixth graders and I will be focusing on a growth mindset this year. Sixth grade can be a bit of a hot mess sometimes (hey, so can I), but these young minds truly deserve the best. My goal through this year is to use a self-paced model along with technology integration in order to really target this idea of continuous growth.
I am starting the Instructional Technology Masters program at Georgia Southern University in Fall of 2017, so some post will probably pop up as I process my own growth in a new area.
Those who can do, but those who can do more teach.
