A Community for Upper Elementary Math Teachers
GUESS WHAT?! I have something so very exciting to share with you! You know I LOVE all my math teacher friends, right? Whether in real life or online, you can never have enough teacher friends. There's just something about being able to talk math with a group of people who just get you...
For a while now I have wanted to create some way for math teachers, specifically those who work with 3rd-5th grade students, to connect and grow together. I wanted a place that was completely devoted to #allthingsmath where teachers could come to learn from each other and be inspired by one another. I wanted a place where math teachers could come to support each other on the hard days and celebrate the great days! Teaching math is 100% my passion and I wanted to share that passion with
THE WORLD (okay, I may have dramatized that a bit) other MATH TEACHERS!
Are you ready for the EXCITING NEWS YET?! A good friend of mine, Tammy from Tarheelstate Teacher, and I are finally making this dream a reality! We are officially launching our UPPER ELEMENTARY MATH TEACHERS Facebook group!
We would love nothing more than if you would join this community of teachers because well, IT IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!
If you don't know Tammy, her mission is to provide a place where passionate teachers + differentiation lovers unite to create classroom environments that get results for our students - socially, emotionally, and academically. She is a rockstar champion for teachers and students and I could not be more excited to partner with her in this math adventure!
Before your nerdy math brain bursts with excitement, let me share with you our mission and our heart behind this group...
Our desire is to help teachers feel confident in teaching math, understand the standards and how to teach them, with a focus on how to support students' thinking in their many phases of learning. We want you to feel supported and inspired!
We want this community to be a judgement-free zone by remembering that we all want to improve our math teaching and engage with like-minded colleagues, not because we are already perfect but because we always strive to be better!
If you are ready to be positive, be supportive, be collaborative, be open-minded, and be ever tenacious in the pursuit of being the best math teacher you can be, we want you to join us!
To kick off the learning together, we are doing a summer book study! Be sure to check out this post to learn more!
