Feedback from PREVIOUS NYC Math LabS

Attending Math Lab was not only one of, if not the most, powerful PD experiences I’ve had, but public teaching also helped reignite my passion for teaching when I felt it was gone.
It was inspiring to watch others in action. It truly helped me reflect on my own teaching.
This is really a way to improve public schools (and thank you for being excellent models)!
At Math Lab, I learned so much about the importance of building a math community and giving multiple opportunities for students to explain their thinking.
I used to think that because I hated math, I would be horrible at teaching it too. Now I think because of my mistakes I can understand and teach math better!
I have received and delivered professional development in many formats and contexts during my career and can say that this experience was among the most inspiring and impactful I have encountered.
