Today I was searching Google Blogs for math teachers that are active bloggers which could potentially help me on my path to becoming a math teacher. During my search I found the website called Great Math Teaching Ideas created by William Emeny who used to be a secondary school math teacher and now works at Wyvern College in Hampshire, England as a lecturer and Deputy Curriculum Leader. Emeny wrote a blog on his site called “Probably the best blogs by maths teachers around the world” which he shares his thoughts on what he thinks are the best blogs by teachers around the world.

There are some really great blogs out there written by maths teachers who really care about their practice. I enjoy reading their posts as they share their insight and ideas and think about how it could improve my own teaching.

I believe that this blog is the entry point to my own network of connections that can help me on my path to becoming a math teacher. The blog pointed me to great and experienced k-12 math teachers that actively blog on how to make math education better. Among such educators is Dan Meyer, who has very interesting ideas on how to improve math education by letting students develop their independent thinking skills and Kate Nowak who Emeny decribes as a blogger who keeps the big picture of mathematics teaching in mind. It is very likely that I will find potential connections through Emeny’s blogs that could help me a lot in my educational journey.

Good post. You find some real good stuff and I believe they are really help full. Math was scary to until last Spring’12 semester, but I had a great teacher in that semester who make me believe that I can do math. So it is really important to have good teacher for math or any subject. I believe you will keep reading those blogs and enrich you knowledge.

Thanks thasan7, your comment is encouraging. I’ll try to learn as much as I can through my math connections.

I love the TED’s talk on your blog of “Probably the best blogs by maths teachers around the world” I think he was extremely entertaining and his message was clear. I agree that our current curriculum isn’t working. We need to revise it and teachers need to come together and come up with new learning strategies to teach the material.

Now a days, building connection is very important and its great to know that you were able to find a good source to help you in your path of becoming a teacher. We must keep visiting their blog page to get updates. Learning new concepts and strategies is very helpful in order to teaching students. Thank you for sharing!
