At the Chalkboard

Well, it's probably better that I couldn't post pictures the other day, because now I have even more! In the past two weeks I have observed eighteen math lessons and taught one of my own. The teachers and kids have been wonderful and I'm so happy it all worked out. Now I just have to write 40 pages about it...

All the kids use miniature chalkboards. I bought one for myself and it might be my favorite souvenir.

One of the classrooms at the private school.

One of the classrooms at the public school. (They're not all quite this nice.)

That's me...teaching a geometry lesson!!

A shape for every kid, plus a silly band at the end.


  1. So glad all that shape cutting got put to good use! Anxious to hear your impressions of the different schools and your interactions with kids and staff. But probably has to wait until the 40-page paper is finished!
    Happy typing!

  2. Standing at that chalk board is exactly where you were meant to be. You make it look so easy! Makes our complaining about class size of 30 seem crazy.....I stopped counting at 55......Way to Go Rachel!!!!

  3. Rachael, this is so beautiful; seeing you for the first time at the board teaching a class like you have always talked of teaching. What a wonderful, life experience that you can keep in your heart of memories forever. "Oh, I just want to cry!" I am so happy for you and what you are doing. Keep up the good work and can't wait to see and hear all about your journey! :-) Love your Aunti Flo

  4. Look at you at the chalkboard - way to go, Rachel! Those kiddos are super cute. I hope they behaved well for ya :)
