I have one class of 14 students, Algebra 1 Concepts & Skills, our most basic algebra course offered at the high school. There are days that I end that class wondering if anyone is going to remember how to solve a 2 step equation; the overall maturity level is, well, that of a 14 year old boy since they dominate the class. Dominate vocally would be an understatement.
Then there’s days like today, where I started the hour with a student slipping me this note just as the bell rang:
Day = Made
Even though 2 kids were sent out that hour today, some of “the usual suspects” were trying to be mindful of our class rules.
It’s the little things that keep me in the profession, not June, July and August. Well those are perks too 🙂
