"The first time you're going to have disruptions [in the classroom]... the first thing you want to do is go on the attack... what I realised was that there are things going on in the students' lives which don't excuse these behaviours but they explain them."
This upcoming episode my friend Jonathan Kim Sing (Mista Kim Sing
) a maths teacher and youtuber (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCia1fNrP6W40JXW3SlZtkNg
), explores teaching both the discipline (maths) and the student. We explore his journey of becoming a teacher, and the influences that shapes his how he teaches and engages those within the classroom.
And yes, I did ask the age old question: "What has the theory of differentiation and parabolas got to do with my everyday life?"
