    My name is Taryn McMillen, but most of my students call me Ms. Mack.

    For the 2021-2022 school year teaching 8th grade, advanced algebra 1, and STEM at Cooper Junior High in Wylie, TX.

    I am excited [albeit overwhelmed] about the opportunity to learn how to make the meaningful math moments that I have heard about from Kyle and Jon work in my own classroom. I want to figure out how to make these work with the standards I am required to teach. I plan to introduce my math team at school to the concept of teaching through task at the start of this school year, but I am concerned they may not see the benefits. So I am hoping that this academy and the discussions that take place here can be my “support system” as I figure things out.
