I’m proud to say I made a career change in 2007 when I was selected to join the New York City Teaching Fellows after working for five years in the music business. Since then, I have been teaching middle school mathematics at MS88 in Brooklyn while also becoming a Math for America Master Teacher Fellow. In 2011 my school was awarded a grant that brought the School of One blended learning model to MS88, and I began leading an amazing team of colleagues through this highly collaborative model. School of One allows students to learn at their own pace in a totally redesigned, open classroom. Every day, both the students and I are assigned new lessons in one of seven different learning modalities. At the end of each day’s class, we use an exit slip to evaluate and regroup students based on their progress. I love using a blended model because I have the ability to differentiate and target instruction in ways I never could before. Both the students and I are more engaged than ever because of it.
