In the last year, the number of Black families homeschooling has increased.

"It’s the education we thought we were going to get when we desegregated," said Cheryl Fields-Smith, an associate professor in #MFECOE's Department of Educational Theory and Practice. “Access to the things that are going to enrich our children—not only their brains but their spirits and how they see themselves in the world.”

While schools remain closed and I have time away from my students, I am keeping my brain cells occupied with on-line training and learning new activity ideas so that I will feel ahead of the curve upon returning to work. I just wanted to share this FREE online website with numerous activity ideas and training videos that are great for new and veteran teachers. It has been an invaluable resource to me. Hope you find it to be the same for you. ENJOY!

I graduated from Georgia's College of Education in December of 1997 with my MEd in Secondary Mathematics (maiden name Meschel). I now live in Indiana and teach at Manchester University in North Manchester, Indiana in mathematics. I am writing because I need help from the Georgia College of Education community with something kind of cool. I have entered a song writing competition sponsored by the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics). My entry is a parody called We Didn't Write The Standards which focuses on mathematics taught in grades K through 12. The parody is based on Billy Joel's hit We Didn't Start The Fire. I am asking all of you to go to https://www.nctm.org/NCTM-Song-Contest/ and VOTE for my song and accompanying video. You must enter your birthday as proof that you are over 18. You will have a choice of about 59 submitted videos (these are on three pages so you may need to check all three pages to find mine) and you are looking for the one of me dressed completely in black, wearing dark sunglasses, short brown hair, sitting at a table with a Chicago Marathon poster hanging behind me. Please listen to my song and prepare to be thoroughly entertained (my bad singing means focusing on lyrics is important). The video is a spoof of Billy's Joel's video. If you like what you see and hear, PLEASE VOTE FOR ME! The five videos at the end of the month of January with the most votes move on to the final round where they will be judged by a panel. The grand prize is free registration to the annual NCTM Conference this coming April in Chicago. Facebook is my only form of social media so I am relying ON ALL OF YOU TO VOTE, SPREAD THE WORD, and help me make it to Chicago this April! Thank you for your time and attention to this matter and Go Dawgs!
If anyone graduated with their teaching degree or a math degree, I have a job opportunity in Atlanta! (also, if you have a degree in German, I have a teaching opportunity as well). Personal message me!
