Stoking the Fire: Putting your Reason for Teaching to Work
In October of 2023, I gave a talk at the Annual Conference of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in Washington, D.C. What follows is a description of that talk, a link to the handout for that talk, the slides supporting the talk, a citation for reference, and finally resources mentioned within the talk.
Behind every teacher is a calling to invest in the lives of others. But sometimes that calling gets lost in the daily whirlwind of teaching. Through the lens of identity, agency, and access, participants will recall, refine, and connect their call to teaching to practices that will recharge and improve their teaching to foster doers of mathematics.
