During my first and second years of teaching I was also going to grad school each night and every Saturday to get my MAT in Mathematics. During the weeknights I had classes with k-12 teachers from all over NYC. Sometimes we'd practice delivering instruction or directions and I remember whenever the kindergarten or early elementary teachers stood up to practice, the whole room would go silent and us high school teachers would watch, picking our jaws up off the floor after. The amount of energy these early-grade teachers brought to their instruction was INSANE. Everything was a captivating performance. In today's interview, we're going to hear from another friend from my hometown, Alyssa Pyle, who's changing the game of virtual teaching by delivering engaging lessons to her elementary kids every week.
