It’s starting to feel official. I’m not going to teach math next year. Instead, I’ll be teaching Learning Center, our school’s version of Resource Room. I’m excited to differentiate and supplement the curriculum of students with diverse needs for their other 5 classes. It’ll be a new challenge and I am ready to think deeply about not only mathematics, but also language arts and writing, literature, US and World history, language acquisition (of French, Spanish and English), and the sciences.
This summer I am planning on writing the curriculum, reviewing the content taught at my school, reading all of the books that the little ones read, think deeply about and create sustainable systems, and plan the first few units.
Hooray for new challenges! Huzzah for differentiation!
