Probably most interesting is that I was a kid who couldn't multiply in the 6th grade. Math has never come easy for me so I really understand what it feels like for so many kids who struggle w/math. I never would have thought I would grow up to be a math teacher, math intervention coach and create a website to help kids (www.digitwhiz.com)!
