First day with students, first math problem of the year: infinite correct answers, lots of room for complexity.
Might not look like it, but made lots of progress today. Junk is gone, shelves are clean, printer works, Chromecast installed and doing more than I thought it would. Working on actual teaching stuff for a bit. Also got class lists: 73 students! Let's do this!
What???! School starts with 3 days of full-school math PD from Megan Holmstrom? How lucky are we?
Just got home and realized this was the only photo I took today (too show IT guys what I was talking about). Long, HOT, frustrating day of cleaning out old classroom junk, moving furniture, thinking about classroom setup, dealing with some clunky tech, but always (thankfully) getting lots of patient help from the staff. Hopefully it'll start to come together tomorrow.
First look at my new classroom!!!
