Living la vida loca in the trenches.
Avid readers of my scintillating blogposts will recall one of my resolutions this year was to spend more time in classrooms providing small group support where I can. I am pleased to announce that operation "RTI Math support" is in full swing! I emailed all my math teachers if I would be welcome as an extra set of hands in their classroom and the sound of doors swinging open across the building was nigh deafening (my teachers simply rock!).
It's been fun spending time in the classroom, learning with students and building a different kind of rapport with my teachers. Granted this is only the third week of school for the district, however I already feel a kinship with staff members and students that feel richer and deeper - I'm in the trenches, not telling them what to do, just doing what they do alongside them. It's pretty neat!
Looking forward to providing an update in another few weeks!
