Episode 115: @wahedahbug, part 2

Posted in Interview, Podcast on September 26, 2013 by Ashli

Here’s part 2 of Tangent’s interview with @wahedahbug, a teacher from the small town of Hana, HI. In this part, she answers some questions from the twitter community and we muse on fractions and school mascots. If you want to listen to someone passionate about education with a deep desire to get better, you’ve come to the right spot! I also think this may win the “most shout outs to the twitter community” award 😀

You can find today’s guest on twitter or on her blog or through a window into her class.

Episode 114: @wahedahbug, part 1

Sometimes life gives you lemons and other times life sends you to an island where you get to eat fresh mangos. Just don’t offer any to @wahedahbug–she thinks they are gross. Last Spring I had the good fortune of visiting @wahedahbug at her home in Hana, HI. She is every bit as epic in person as you would expect and the kiddos of Hana are lucky to have her.  And since she cannot be contained, part two will be up in two weeks.

Check out @wahedahbug on twitter or on her blog or through a window into her class.

Hope everyone is making a great start to their year. Please feel free to drop a line with comments/queries or if you would to have something you are doing in the Math Ed world signal boosted.
