As a math major at Williams College, I gained an in-depth knowledge of advanced mathematics; this allows me to teach basic concepts with a big picture perspective that will excite students about the beauty and importance of math.
I believe that it is key to teach students, from a young age, the broad scope of opportunities that a strong mathematical background can provide. Math is omnipresent from airplanes and Ipods to 3-d graphics and medicine. As a young student, it is difficult to see why it is important to know this crazy complex thing called math; my first goal is to create enthusiasm for the subject.
