by Cicely Woodard, 8th grade math & Honors Algebra I teacher
"Since implementing Common Core State Standards in my middle school mathematics classroom, my role as teacher has changed. No longer am I the ultimate source of knowledge in the classroom. Instead I am a facilitator of student-centered, student-led learning. No longer am I helping students to choose the right answer. Now I am helping them to develop deep understanding of mathematics that has meaning to their lives. My expectations are high, and everyday my students are rising to meet those expectations."
