Subject: How to get motivated

  Take some time off to search out all the new developements in math. 
There is less stress as a student than as the teacher.  The more you
know the more confident you will be.  Also look for the excitment in a
students face when they have an  "ah ha" moment (like they get it).  
I designed a system to teach k-4 math that helps the children beat the
calculator.  It is called DotMath for kids.  I find it very rewarding
to see their face when they get 100%.

Last week I taught this to a friends grand daughter from Texas.  The
girl is in grade one.  I showed her how to use the paper calculator
and she had a race against her father (he had a real calculator).  She
beat him every time.  The battery died in his calculator on the race. 
She was so pleased that she did not have to worry about a dead battery
with her paper calculator.

I hope you find this of interest.
