I am a junior high math teacher in SouthWest MN. I teach in a small school and have all the 7th and 8th graders at our school. I am hoping to use this blog to bounce ideas around and hopefully get some feedback.
I currently am using ideas from standards-based grading, flipped learning, teach like a pirate, differentiation, love and logic, genius hour and many other ideas I have run across from the past 13 years. I love technology and student choice.
I do have a twitter account (@CjSieling34) and have used that to get many great ideas over the past year or so.
I love teaching junior high because it fits my personality well. I will end this short intro post with a quote from Alice in Wonderland that sums up teaching junior high very well...
The Mad Hatter: "There is a place. Like no place on Earth." A land full of wonder, mystery and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter...which luckily I am."
