...I believe in using word problems to teach math concepts. I think many times students forget what problem they are solving and get bogged down with memorizing the mathematical steps. When this happens they are not able to use their analytical skills to solve the problem and they don't know whether the answer they came up with actually makes sense.

My mother was a math teacher, and inspired me to excel in all of my courses.
