Subject: How Children Learn
This class has reaffirmed my belief on how children learn through inquiry. However, I find myself getting under a time crunch to get things taught and have my students prepared for the following year. I also worry about my class being well rounded (knowing a variety of strategies) in math, including the algorythm, in case there are teachers that only accept that method. Does anyone else feel like this?

Yes, I feel the same way, Leah, as I'm sure 99% of us do. Until there is a reality check on expectancies, we will just have to muddle through and do the best we can. I was speaking to a middle school teacher over the weekend who said elementary just needs to do more. I asked her to come down and show me how it can be done.
