I want to write a book. My adviser says to finish my dissertation first. And that would be safe, and prudent and probably it will get done before a book will be polished.
But part of me thinks that now, in graduate school, with control of my schedule, is the time to do it.
But, there are so many beautiful canyons and interesting friends who draw my free time.
I’ve always wanted to write the “teach for us” book that collects and tells the stories here in a compelling way.
I want to write a book about teaching, but not something dry or academic. Instead, I want to write a story of coming to know myself and learning to understand others emotions and mathematical thoughts.
I’m not thinking that this will be a best-seller, but I don’t even think a story about math and emotions and the pain of teaching and growing exists. Or at least I can’t find it on Amazon.
Of course, writing about myself and my students seems a little Cammie-centric, but what do I know better? I just don’t know how to make up fiction. I KNOW that people won’t read something dry about math education unless they study it.
Does anyone else have these giant dreams?
