Description: Blog by a Kentucky middle school teacher sharing "some of the ways I try and bring math to life for my students." Posts, which date back to February, 2014, have included "Standards Based Grading When You Can't Really Standards Based Grade," "Why I Always Lead with the Punchline," "Three Years Into the Common Core: A Teacher's Survival Story," "How I Motivate My Students on That Thing You Aren't Supposed to Talk About," and "Who or What Broke My Kids?" Admitting that she "hated math as a student," Powers went on to complete her agriculture education degree. Her first teaching position, however, left her "amazed at how easily math came to the traditional 'struggling learners' within the context of my class" — so much so that she designed an "ag math" curriculum to "apply math to real-world applications daily in my room" before deciding that "I needed to have a bigger impact and went back to school to earn my math certification."
