Imagine a world without math. It may seem pointless to know half of the things that the teachers will talk to students about, but think about the after effects of knowing some of those things. Maybe you have a career that involves lots of math, well here’s why you need to know the things. Also it comes in handy in just the everyday life as it is.
Now it’s not all about the numbers, math doesn’t have to be this boring subject you have to make it interesting or somehow make it fun in your own way. You would think teaching math would be boring, but not all teachers are all about math. For instance Mr. Koester, he gave me the opportunity of being able to hear his side of the math life.
Mr.Koester, a math teacher, has been teaching for 23, 22 of those years at his very own high school; Port Huron High. What exactly creates the awakening of being a math teacher? As said by Mr. Koester, “I had an experience as a senior in high school with a former teacher of mine who let me be a student aid which allowed me to help students in math with their current subject, which was an arithmetic based class. My teacher seen me helping other students and gave me the advice that I should look into being a math teacher.”
Mr. Koester isn’t always about math either. His hobbies include biking, scuba diving, walking his dog, and anything to do with the outdoors for instance.
When you think of math it should be exhilarating, maybe not all the time but try to make it fun in your own way.
