I took all of their writing and put it together to make a class book as a thank you to Ryan.
My favorite thing about math is that I don't have to know everything, it's okay to be a learner, I can learn higher level math if I work hard, the way I approach problems is valuable to others, and my students can do amazing things when I create opportunities for it.
In reflecting on what the students had to say, it was easy to see that none of this would have been said by the students without the influence and coaching of Ryan over the past few years. I am so grateful to have had the most amazing coach anyone could ask for. I hope to keep learning and empowering other teachers along the way in the years to come.
