  • Hi Sam, I'll be using Brain Drain in my class tomorrow, cross my fingers! I'm a retired engineer that the local high school called in desperation when they came up one math teacher short. It hasn't been pretty, my crown management is not great. I'm going to check out the blogs in your PPT. Thanks!

  5. 5. I’ve been talking too much
  6. 6. h we’ll be using laptops (or ipads) soon so could you please get them open and booted up so I don’t prattle on endlessly?

  24. 24. FIN
  25. 25. Index Cards On the front: How did the sesh go? What worked? What didn’t? Thoughts? A haiku? On the back: Any questions you have for me? Name? Email? Blog? Twitter?
  26. 26. Benefits for You 1. You can get awesome ideas for the classroom (including for Common Core and the Regents), without digging through a zillion books and a thousand terrible websites. It's all at your fingertips once you learn where to look. And you can share your own ideas with others.
  27. 27. 2. By seeing what others are doing, you will get your own creative juices flowing. You will be continually inspired by others, and you will feel motivated to get better at what you do. No matter where you're at as a teacher, you will get better.
  28. 28. 3. You will have access to a world-class faculty lounge with colleagues who care about what they do. During the day, or at night. They are there to support, help, and laugh with you. Sometimes at you (grin), but mostly with you.
  29. 29. 4. If you love math, you'll be exposed to some math things that will blow your mind! Problems, games, tricks, different perspectives.
  30. 30. 5. We're real teachers, in the trenches, with a common passion for what we do. We don't work for companies. We're not consultants. We just do what we do, and now we do it with each other. And over time, we have become friends and not just colleagues. We want to be friends with you too. Thank you for making me laugh, thank you for helping me find a job, thank you for reading my cover letters, lessons plans, resumes, and this crappy little blog. Thank you for helping me love my job. Thank you for being my real life friends. --Sophie Germain
