Clip to ScrapBook #4

Because I was the kid who sat and cried beause I didn't understand a problem, I always start the year telling my story. Then, I reiterate it through the year with understanding why they don't like math, that it is hard for some, etc. Then, when I tell them they can do something or something is easy, most believe me because they know I have figured out a way to do that kind of problem.

My math scores are usually the same OR BETTER than the "math people" teachers in my grade level.
