Harness the power of math

I teach math. I am not really a math person. I know so many more people that are so much more advanced than me. There are three people that I can think of right now that I work with that are amazing math teachers. I really hope to learn a lot from them.

I have always wanted to be a teacher. I taught my kids at home and found myself learning so much. I believe I became addicted to learning. That is probably why I call myself the lead learner in the classroom. My students teach me so much too. I want them to know that it is okay to make a mistake. Things don't have to be perfect.

Math is one of the most beautiful subjects there is. I find it really the easiest subject because there are so many ways to come to a solution. Math has helped me to think more logically and think critically. It has helped me to save money by watching sales, comparing prices and looking at interest rates. Math has helped me to cook food for my family. There is no escaping math in the real world and since that is the case, why try to escape it. Now is the time to harness the power of math.
