Zac Shiner, derelict blogger, and Shira Helft, a fellow graduate from Stanford’s new math teacher cohort last year, have a great list of questions running at Building Our Classroom they’ll be taking on over the course of the summer. Zac elaborates at his blog:
Even though itâ€™s the middle of summer, my job as a teacher seems to be unavoidable in my day to day life. Iâ€™m not just talking about the unavoidable questions of â€œso what do you do for a living,â€ but the places my mind drifts to when I have nothing else to think about. During silences in conversations, or when I close my eyes at the end of the day thoughts of my soon to be classroom are constantly filling my mind.
Zac eats, breathes, and sleeps this job.
