After 12 years of teaching 7th grade math, pre-algebra, and algebra, I knew I needed to do things differently. I felt stuck in a rut and didn’t know how to get out. I teach at a small Christian middle school where I am the only 7th and 8th grade math teacher. I love my school, but I wanted to be able to collaborate with other math teachers about new ideas. I went on the Internet not knowing what I was looking for. WOW is all I can say! I began reading blogs, which led me to an online book chat, which led me to getting a twitter account, which led me to the MathTwitterBlogosphere challenge. Within a short time, I feel transformed and inspired! Thank you to everyone for sharing your great ideas. I hope to be able to give back to the community that has helped me.
