I chose Math Education because math always came very easy to me in high school. I love being able to help others not dislike math. I get a lot of the bad attitudes and negative thoughts coming in to my classroom, so I try to turn that around and make it a positive atmosphere where we can laugh, have fun, and enjoy ourselves with our learning. I feel that students need a strong background in math because math is everywhere in life. UNK set the foundation for the teacher that I am today.
