Today, we’re flipping it around and switching it up. Instead of being the interview-er like I normally am, in this episode I’m the interview-ee. Several months ago, Nathan Vann, host of The Teacher’s Morning Prep Podcast, invited me to be a guest on his show -- and he’s agreed to share that episode with you here, on the Mindful Math Podcast. We discussed a variety of topics, and one overarching theme was the unique challenges math teachers face -- and what we can do about them. Whether you’ve already transitioned back to in-person learning, or if you’re gearing up for it in the near future, this episode is packed with timely and relevant tips to help you give yourself the grace you deserve, differentiate to meet your students’ needs, and avoid a common (and ineffective) approach to catching kids up. Let’s hand it over to Nathan to take it away!
Have you ever asked yourself:
  • How can I find time for myself as a teacher? 
  • ​How can I build a classroom community that supports deep learning of mathematics? 
  • ​What does equitable instruction entail, and what mindsets, opportunities, strategies, and outcomes are necessary to achieve it? 
  • ​How can I teach in a way that reaches all students, including students who enter my class with a lot of unfinished learning?
  • ​What are the most effective ways to increase access to grade-level math and help ‘bridge the gap’?

A big believer in the 80/20 rule, Chrissy wants to help YOU answer this question above all others: Where should I focus my efforts to make the MOST IMPACT on my students’ learning experiences and math proficiency? In short, what actions truly move the needle when it comes to math?

Drawing from her vast experience as a math educator over the past two decades, Chrissy shares practical advice you can use to create a positive math community and reach every learner no matter their starting point -- all while finding balance in your own life.
