I started this summer at Columbia Teachers College to get an MA in Secondary Math Ed with initial NY State certification (grades 7-12!). I'm part of the Math for America-New York program. I will begin student teaching this fall, after completing 100 (!!!) required hours of observations. After I get my degree, I'll be teaching in one of the five boroughs until 2014!
I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions when I start student teaching. This is my first out of college (just graduated from GW), so there's a lot for me to learn!
Ideally, I'd like to teach 8th grade :)
