This is what's on my mind right now.

It's not Yay Math's mission statement. That's 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 in my mind, right now.

I love teaching so much. It's art. It's a fusion: informative, performative... and together, transformative. OOOOH I should drop that in my next speech. 'Twil be a crowd pleaser, for sure.

Students know when we're dialed in. If we want to be there. If we care about their learning experience. There is peace and power in this realization. They are the recipients of our offering, so ultimately, doing right by them is the preeminent standard to hold. It is the North Star.

So fellow teachers: whether you're in the classroom or right at home, put yourself out there. Do something unique, silly, funny, provocative (age-appropriately), and special. Kids crave that level of investment from us. Let's give it to them.
