  • Hi From Pennsylvania

    My name is Erica Lee. I am a math educator and teacher leader(coach) at my school. I teach in a public school in Philadelphia . I teach students in grades 9-12 at my school in the 5 classes I teach this year. This year I have geometry, regular statistics and AP Statistics. Ive been teaching for 13 years and most of that has been at my current school. 

    I started listening to edu podcasts because I needed to hear from teachers who were excited and inspired to be educators. Your podcast put me on notice! Teaching traditional was not the most effective teaching I could do for my students I know I needed to change, they deserved better. The start of this year, I’m off to the races with the thinking classroom protocol in place, that has already made a huge difference in my students attitudes and participation in class.

    I love the idea of having a community that can support through this transition. And since I coach teachers and conduct PD for our math Department that has grades 5-12, I get a real chance to spread the wealth.
