I’ve tried using #hiphoped but it’s definitely something I can do more this year!

TED TalksI’ve only recently discovered Chris Emdin (, twitter: @chrisemdin), known for #hiphoped, or Hip Hop Education, but what he has to say in the following TED Talk resonates resoundingly with me as an Educator. I really can’t help but wonder how this didn’t end up in last week’s post – 50 Ted Talks Every Educator Should Check Out (2014 Edition).

Welcome to Matholina!

I’m (Miss) Rachelle Haynik, a secondary mathematics teacher starting my 2nd year in Weldon, North Carolina. My students at Roanoke Valley Early College deserve the best education possible. During my first year, I did my best, so here I’ll chronicle some of my successes – unit plans, lessons, and community building activities. I’ll also add to this during my 2nd year as I work to become better for them. I hope that this site will become a warehouse for suggestions for new and veteran teachers, as well as a community of support within the teaching profession.

Please like, post, comment, and share at will. We can improve together!
