### When I narrate students’ mathematical reasoning, I engage in storytelling.

I work to analyze what students say and do to better understand their perspectives.

I have the great privilege of learning from students who are willing to talk with me about their work to solve mathematics problems.

This weekend’s stories remind me of the responsibility that comes with that privilege.
