This is what's on my mind right now.

It's not Yay Math's mission statement. That's in the navigation bar at the top of the website.

It's not social media, which shares Yay Math's latest milestones.

It's what I'm focused on at this point in my life. Think of how you'd answer when a friend asks you, "So what's going on with you?"

This is what's going on with me, right now.

Master chefs need precise setups for their kitchens. Elite athletes demand a multitude of specific processes and routines. Highly competent business moguls are fanatic about the structures that form the backbone of their enterprise.

Masterful teaching is no different.

To anyone charged with educating others: as you progress in your craft and gain experience, don't hesitate to have requirements. Examples may include how you set up your learning space, the exact breakdown of how much time is spent on what, and what the students need to bring, do, or even believe for that matter. We can and must have laser-focused intention on everything, from the supplies on the tables, to the culture that swirls around the room.

To become a masterful teacher requires you to be specific about what must be in place. Claiming that right is a critical must-have in your ascent as a practitioner.
