I just took the California CSET Math I and II tests in Algebra and Geometry. These are the qualifying tests to be able to study as an Intern in math for California High Schools. This wouldn't be so unusual I guess if it wasn't that my last math class was in 1963 - more than 45 years ago.
In my other blog, Sustainable Rays, I wrote a short entry about words that Nelson Mandela apparently said:
It always seems impossible until it's doneI think I want to make that my theme as a teacher.
In this blog I will write my thoughts about teaching and learning. Right now it is before teaching in California schools, although I taught English and German in Danish high schools for about 14 years earlier in my career. But I think this will be an entirely different challenge.
I plan to start by observing some classes nearby, and then in June I will start my internship training. I am sure that then I will have much more to write about!
