My fellowship has definitely changed me as a teacher. I have been a leader at my school, but now have taken more of a leadership role in the county. I’m part of a K-8 math team and we have a common goal to improve math scores in our county. There is frequent collaboration of math vocabulary, math strategies, and pros/cons of our math curriculum.
I am also more aware of what is going on in my classroom. I’ve been more intentional at planning more group work and using higher order questions. I learned how important problem solving was and is throughout my fellowship.
