“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”― Heraclitus
I am a math teacher. I have been for quite some time. At my first school, there were no resources. No teacher copy of the book, no overheads, nobody else who had taught my subject areas (Calculus and Algebra). I spent my first two years doing everything I could to simply survive. As I reenter the classroom this fall, 5 years later, I will still be teaching calculus and abgebra, but everything will have changed. I am not the person or teacher I was and my students are not the same either. The key is to approach my days with appreciation for those on the journey. The same is true at NSLC. Our staff is on their second or third session of the summer and all are ready to begin again, anew, and to approach each day with appreciation for those on the journey.
Welcome to the NSLC at Fordham University.
