I got four subbing jobs this week, and three of them were in math. I never particularily hated math in school. In fact, I like the flow of logic to algebra and geometry. But I can't seem to explain it to save my life. Also, I had Statistics and Calculus, both of which I never learned. So there I stand before the students, admitting to my utter lack of knowledge and asking them to muddle through it as best they can. They get noisier and noisier, and I withdraw to my desk to shuffle papers, bored and useless. The students are waiting for summer and so am I.
Interestingly enough, some have asked about my writing. I have a fantasy that one day when I'm published, they'll see my name at the bookstore and be like, "Hey, that was my teacher!"
