This Math Teacher Loves Mistakes


You told us you learn best from your colleagues, so we’ve been working to build a brand new vault of videos featuring some best practices from top Tennessee teachers. Our hope is that we can provide a window into high-performing classrooms, allowing teachers to watch their peers in action and listen in on student discussions across the state

Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing videos from two Tennessee teachers. Today, we introduce Christian Jenkins. Christian teaches math at Antioch High School in Metro Nashville Public Schools.

In this video, Christian explains why mistakes, both his and his students’, are one of his most powerful teaching tools.

We’re excited to visit even more classrooms in 2015 and showcase what is working so well for teachers across the state. Tell us who we should visit at your school.
