Mathematics really "clicked" for me but not until college. My mathematics journey did not follow a straight path. After high school I attended Michigan State University and earned a science degree in Dietetics with a Mathematics minor. After 8 years in healthcare, I decided to finish the mathematics program for teaching at Saginaw Valley State University. Since then, I have collected two more degrees, a BS in Mathematics and MAT Natural Science/Mathematics. Degrees are great and all, but I learn the most from my students, what works and what does not. I love mathematics and am always looking for ways to improve how you learn and understand it. One piece of advice I can give you is to not give up!
