I love reading math teacher blogs. And I want to contribute to the community. Finding the time and self-editing myself is proving to be difficult. I’m struggling at work and I think, I know, the others in the MTBoS can help. How honest can I be online? My desire to remain professional results in my being private and less visible on social media.

  1. I teach middle school math. My email is If you want to talk and want to do it in a less public way, email me. I don’t have all the answers, but I’ve been teaching for about 10 years and have taught just about all the different middle school math classes my school offers. I have also worked as a math coach for my district. Don’t stay alone. Teaching is hard but it is easier with support and a community.

  2. I got a message from a blog reader the other day that reminded me that no one has it figured out. She took the time to thank me for the fact that I talk about the times I mess up on my blog because it is a reminder to her that I’m not perfect. I think we can all be guilty of putting other teachers on a pedestal.

    We’re all just trying to figure this whole teaching thing out. When someone is vulnerable, it lets the whole community grow and learn.
