    Hello.  My name is MJ.  I will be teaching 8th grade for this upcoming school year.  I have been working as an instructional mathematics coach for the past 6 years.  Before coaching, I taught 8th grade math.  I am looking forward to returning to the classroom and working with students again.

    Hi Mary, 

    Welcome to the Academy! Where do you call home? What did you miss most about the classroom? 

    We’re looking forward to learning with you!

    I am from Joliet IL.  What I missed the most about the classroom was the relationships with the students.  As an instructional coach my interaction with students was limited to days and times that I scheduled with teachers to be in their classrooms.  There was no consistency with when I would be around and so students saw me more as a novelty than a dependable adult engaged in their learning path.
