Author:Ben Orlin
Description: Blog by a high school teacher in Oakland, California, "about the things I like [and] also about the things I can't do," in the hopes that their "juxtaposition captures the contradictory state of the teacher, of the mathematician." Posts "owning up to weakness and drawing strength from successes," which date back to April, 2013, have included "What I Show My Students When They Get the Right Answer for the Wrong Reason," "Fistfuls of Sand (or, Why It Pays to Be a Stubborn Teacher)," and "What It Feels Like to Be Bad at Math."
