Prior to working for High Tech High, I taught at Stevenson PACT Elementary School, where my teaching partner and I taught to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice. We primarily used the EngageNY curriculum, although I also drew on resources from Investigations, YouCubed, Dan Meyer, Graham Fletcher, Duane Habecker, and Mike Lawler. In my current position, our gradelevel team continues to use those standards and resources to inform our work. With my students, I have developed success criteria for all classroom practices, including math assignments, and it is available here.
