This school year, my partner Regina and I facilitated an 8-month long cohort of math educators called Math Rocks. You can read about our first two days together in July here and here. I also wrote this post if you want a peek into our learning during the school year.
As our time together drew to a close, I asked each participant to write a blog post reflecting on Math Rocks. Today I went back through their reflections to pull out snippets to share to encourage other teachers in our district to apply for next year’s cohort. You can read more snippets from their reflections here.
Can I just tell you how amazing it is to read this? In my first few years of teaching, the path of my career and my understanding of math were steered in entirely new directions when I took part in an extended PD experience. I can’t express to you how much it means to me to be in a position now where I’m able to learn with and from teachers on their own journeys through teaching and math. I couldn’t be happier.
