Hello! My name is Sara Lasker, and I hope to teach secondary mathematics.

As a teacher I hope to embody compassion, confidence, and enthusiasm.

Technology has the potential to expand learning beyond the classroom. It can help give students an understanding of the importance of what they're learning. Math is foundational for technological advancement, and helping students see the multiple fields and professions that require math can increase their interest. Today's students constantly use technology outside of school, and I think incorporating it into teaching would help students find learning more enjoyable.
However, using technology in the classroom can be distracting for students when it's used ineffectively and inefficiently. Cost also provides a major obstacle in using technology, and opportunities may be unaffordable for many schools.

In this class I hope to learn how to use web technology to virtually connect to other classrooms around the world.
