I have been given the honor of filling in for the 7th grade math teacher at CMS while she is on maternity leave. It has been a great experience. I have always considered math to be one of my weaker subjects. To my surprise, I have enjoyed teaching math and have sought out ideas to keep math meaningful and even a bit fun. I found a video on Teaching Channel about an excellent math teacher, Mr. Kajitan. He uses rap music to reinforce mathematical concepts. Mr. Kajitan makes an extra effort to connect mathematical concepts to real life situations for his middle school students. This is an inspiring video!
