What the EMU Students are Saying–Rachel

An interview with pre-student teacher Rachel Robinson:

What was your favorite lesson so far? Middle School Math–Symmetry and Mandalas

This lesson is my favorite because the students seemed to be very engaged. I enjoyed watching and helping the students make unique mandala designs. Each student used their knowledge of symmetry and tracing paper to create a mandala that was made up of cool shapes, patterns, and colors. They turned out awesome!

Top five things I’ve learned since I started this experience

  1. Timing the lesson can be difficult
  2. You can never be too prepared
  3. Students will ask questions that catch you off guard
  4. Teaching with a co-teacher is SO HELPFUL
  5. You can’t rely on technology

Thanks, Rachel, for your thoughts!
