Today was my first day teaching Mrs. Toller’s class.
I felt like a baseball player who had just been transferred up to the Yankees and told to pitch after only playing in the minor leagues for half a season.
One of the things I complained about teaching the most in America was vocabulary. While I agree it’s important to have a big and high-level vocabulary, I never had to go through much effort to learn the words myself. I was “blessed” with a mother who consistently uses “High Vocab” or “Tier 2” words, even when simple words would easily suffice. (I even wrote an essay about this phenomenon.)
Yesterday, I learned from Mrs. Toller, my mentor teacher here, how she teaches math, and thought it was pretty cool.
