Hi from New Jersey
Hi, my name is Gerilyn and I am a third-grade teacher in Trenton, NJ. I am finishing my third year in 3rd grade after 20 years of Early Childhood. I have always loved math and gravitated to it in my teaching. Teaching third grade really challenged me because I only taught preschool and kindergarten previously. I wanted to teach third grade math like I taught preschool. I wanted it to be hands on and fun and engaging. I have worked hard to make sure that my students were not just filling in worksheets and spitting back what I said. I wanted my students to think and solve. One of my biggest struggles is getting my students to understand that there is not just one way to solve a problem and that it is okay to think aloud and be wrong. It’s the thinking that means so much more than just getting a correct answer. I am excited to join this group and learn from all the other teachers who love math and their students.
