    In this episode of the Get More Math podcast, Josh chats with Rita Sponenburg about how after 18 years of teaching math, the pandemic finally forced her to switch to a flipped classroom.  That coupled with Get More Math,  Rita is able to wake up each morning and reflect on how much she loves her job, not an easy thing to do in the middle of a pandemic.   Now that she’s adjusted, she says there’s no going back.

    About our Guest
    This is my 18th year of teaching at the Midd-West School District in Middleburg, Pennsylvania. For the first 12 years, I was the yearbook advisor, taught Precalculus, Trigonometry, as well as Algebra I & II, and served as math department chair. I currently teach 6th-grade math and continue to represent the math department at the curriculum council. I learned about GMM in 2018 and quickly realized this is what my team needed to pull us out of a standardized testing slump. We went from 15/16 in our region to #1 for growth on the Math PSSA! GMM made that possible for us. I am married with a son and two stepdaughters. We love to go on vacation, make S'mores around the campfire, and watch Disney movies. My hobbies include making scrapbooks and working out.
