There are a lot of emotional blog posts floating around the internet about the Common Core. It was refreshing to find this interview with middle school math teacher Fawn Nguyen. The interview on the subject of common core math was originally posted on MathBlogging.org. We hope you’ll read the entire interview but here is one quote just to wet your whistle:

“The best things about CCSS for me are not even the standards – they are the 8 Mathematical Practices. These are life-long habits that will serve students well, in all disciplines.”
