no drill and kill

I think drill and kill is awful. That is not learning. That is memorizing for a short period of time and then forgetting it. There is no way you can teach math and it not be hands on. at some point. I don't care what grade you teach. I got GREAT scores this year. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I taught from a TAKS practice.
