If you can do middle school math for an hour+ everyday, you can do anything! Too many students (and adults) lack confidence in math. Of course we all have natural strengths and abilities, but strengths and abilities can be developed, including those relating to math. Middle school is a time where students gain mathematical knowledge that lays a foundation for higher level math courses in high school, careers, and college.
I love Nelson Mandela's quote about education being the most powerful weapon in the world. My desire for students is to know that they have the power to determine their future! I believe that when presented with the right opportunities and equipped with the right tools, everyone can succeed at anything they want to. As a teacher, I hope to provide these opportunities and tools for students.
