Throughout my fall semester I have gained confidence in becoming a mathematics teacher. I have learned how to use different manipulatives and how to create lesson plans that can be easily adapted and differentiated for other students within the classroom. I have become much more aware of problem solving and how different heuristics can help students understand problems better. I have learned how to incorporate different strategies within the classroom during my fall semester.

As I continue on with my student teaching in the spring, I will add more information about my development. I hope to incorporate even more technology when I teach in the spring. I also hope to learn how to conduct multiple lessons on similar topics.
