Yule Blog Challenge – Day 2

  A success story from this semester

As of this post, I’ve been a math coach for 3 semesters. I love my job! It drives me to view education differently – which inspires me to create interesting lessons. The work accomplished with teachers and students is designed to gently press against the conventions of teaching.  

My success story begins in a 6th grade classroom. As I circulated the room filling out my plastic name tents, a student paid me the best compliment. He said with a smile,  “You’re the Math Ops lady.”  

The definition of black operations (black ops) is a covert military or political operations that may employ measures not generally authorized. If this student and his classmates view the lessons I teach and co-teach as covert, different, interesting, non-traditional or unconventional, then I’ve completed my mission.  At least for now...
