Early mornings, late nights, parent emails, clipboards and suits, coffee, felt pens, the exclamations of "oh, I get it now!" It's all coming! From 0 to 100 overnight! Are you ready?? Eeeep! This post is especially for Math teachers in the first days of school. There will be tips, resources, classroom photos and decorations because you know we all love to decorate!
