What is the most inspiring part of your job?
"I am overwhelmed when I read thank you notes from students. Whether it’s from a first-grade student brimming with joy from the math games we’ve played together or from a senior reflecting sincerely on the way they’ve been shaped by the order and beauty of mathematics, a single heartfelt thank-you note can overcome all the stress and fatigue of being a teacher."
