This school year I am beginning my second year as a mathematics coach in a K-6 building. After teaching first grade for 13 years this was a change but with the help of everyone at the Mathematics Coaching Program at Ohio State University I am learning. As a MCP trained coach I work to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate mathematics practices that correlate with the CCSS. Using rich problems and cooperative learning strategies we encourage students to become active learners who are able to think and discuss their learning. This is our second year with the MCP and we continue to grow and learn as we implement these new strategies in our building.
