I try to make course content relative to students’ daily lives. I also show how they can use these mathematics skills in a day to day lifestyle. I let them see the importance of what we are learning in their personal, real world lives.
Success is when a person tries and doesn’t accept failure as an option. As I was asked by my wife before, “If you are running and you stumble and fall, are you going to just sit there or are you going to get back up and keep running?" Never let anyone define who you are. Only YOU can define who you are!
