Day 4 – How sweet it is!

At long long last, Richard knows how to keep his dear teacher happy.Teacher appreciation week is this week and we’ve had the usual cake and punch and the unusual hour for lunch, but this is the best expression of the day I’ve ever had. We had finished a Math lesson using white boards and the students were allowed to draw a picture. We had just finished a quick discussion about what we thought about the new crazy things Ms. Brandon has been doing in class. Suddenly, there a spontaneous explosion of love notes to me on the white boards: each one different, expressed in a different way. This one though, from one of my most challenging students brings tears to my eyes. His response to Power Teaching, with its high level of student engagement, has been miraculous. I’ve never been so pleased! Now, looks like we need a micro lesson on forms of be.
