Essential info:    I’m 25 and in the past 3 years, I have had 3 very different teaching experiences. This year I am teaching at a Catholic school in New York. Each day I teach 6th grade math, 7th grade math, 8th grade math, Integrated Algebra (9th grade math for my 8th grade math nerds), 6th grade science/health and 7th grade science/health. If you were counting, that is 6 different classes each day!    To top off the math and science overload, I have my M. Ed in Literacy.

Thinking Maps :: I  began using these last year with great results! We loved using them to organize our thinking and they became an important part of our classroom toolkit.  I'm looking forward to using them from the start this year.

Reflections on what teaching experience brings: Looking for problems in the set-up or structure of my lesson when it feels like everyone is failing because of my terrible teaching.    Knowing that it's okay to quit doing something that isn't working.    Seeking out my students opinions first on how to fix or change things in their classroom....

mathisfun.com:  Interactive Cartesian Coordinates.  This is a great tool to learn about the coordinate grid.  It can label the quadrants, plot ordered pairs, draw lines between points, and can be used to show transformations in math--like a reflection over the x axis.
