Tisha Jones just completed our K-5 Mathematics Endorsement. She created this TEDx Talk about her mathematics teaching.
TEDx Talk Description
Despite the fact that thinking about math raises some people’s anxiety levels, there is significant push back when educators suggest new methods of teaching math. Math is not just about numbers, it is about thinking. When we change the way students learn math, we can change the way they think.
Tisha Jones is a dedicated educator with more than 11 years of experience teaching elementary students. Early in her career she discovered her passion for teaching elementary math and has since worked to develop better methods of teaching math to children. She strongly believes that all children can learn and enjoy math. Tisha is also a mom to two amazing boys, Ty (8) and Jaxton (4).
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
