Jonathan So is a grade 6 Classroom Teacher Peel Region. When he and I met a few years ago he was teaching grade 2. He recently earned a Master's Degree in Mathematical Education and had the privilege of talking about "making kids doers of math" at a Parent Conference sponsored by his school Board.
Listen in to what Jonathan has to say about what he is currently doing, what got him into teaching, thoughts about failing a University course and his father's reaction, Mathematics and how it has always been part of his life, his keynote for his school board's parent conference, his teaching philosophy and how it came to be, his love of learning, what he would say to people who are not motivated/inspired, how he sees things differently since becoming a father, and Stuart Shanker and the work he is doing with respect to self regulation.
