Monkey Minds & Cheese

Shooting out a quick post of some of the gems of cheesemonkeysf, my co-presenter, my teaching soulmate and my friend.

  • The quality of student talk is the #1 predictor of group work success.
  • Say just enough, no judgements
  • Focusing on structure (rather than content) frees our minds/calms our nerves
  • (In September,) The students are going to become our community. We’re just not there yet.
  • As math teachers, “we understand why there’s a second column in the proof”
  • “If you really believe everybody can do math, you have to accept everyone”

She always inspires me!
