invites you to the colloquium:

The Real Deal: A Conversation with A New Teacher in Mathematics Education



Torian White


Salem High School, Rockdale County, Georgia


As an undergraduate, I can recall just wanting to question a fresh teacher in the field to find out the real deal. Informally, I would like to share with undergraduates the effectiveness and usefulness of pedagogical techniques given by the Mathematics Education faculty. Also, I will discuss how my teaching philosophy was influenced by what I learned at UGA. For example, I will share the freedoms and restraints of using investigation, student-centered instruction, and technology integration in the mathematics classroom when benchmark and end-of-course assessments and standards are becoming more restrictive and significant. Moreover, I will also discuss the importance of administrative and mentoring support for the success of a beginning teacher as well as other challenges such as special education accommodations and raising student motivation and morale.
