I’m not a schoolteacher, but I am a teacher.
I’m a little different than most of you. I’m not a schoolteacher, but I am a teacher. I am also a mom. I am trying to find ways to help my struggling daughter with her math. She is 2 years behind, I paid out the noise in tutors already, but over and over again it’s the same tired ways. Nothing is being made real to her, nothing is slowed to her speed and left to simmer until she is ready to take the next step.
What do you do when it’s hard? Step aside and say Never Mind? Naaa, find a path that works, and get your Grit on. That path has led us here; I love the take this site has taken to teaching. It’s going to be exactly the fit she needs; she needs to interact in real life with her math she needs to understand, not just route memorize.
