"I haven't always loved mathematics but I have always wanted to teach. I developed a great respect for math in Junior High through my own experience of struggling with doing well for the first time in my life. My teacher Mrs. Strachan was wonderful. I went in for help before and after school and she did all she could to help me be more successful. It was through the example and role model of Mrs. Strachan that I developed a desire to teach mathematics. I wanted to help students be more successful in math."  - Dawn Barson
