I really like the conversation in the in meeting! I like the fact that Kathy let the students lead a lesson in home school. I find it beneficial to sometimes let the students be the teachers. It's surprising what students can teach you. Kathy also brought up a good point that "the teacher has everything to do with sparking the interest in students." If students aren't interested in what we're teaching they won't want to learn. We need to be mindful of every student's interest and cater to it while making our way of teaching our own and making it engaging. I never heard of First in Math. It seems really cool and a good way to keep students motivated to working hard in Math.
