For most, late November and early December marks the beginning of the holiday season and excitement sets in in anticipation of all the festivities and events.  But for me, it marks anticipation and excitement about an important event that I’ve been a part of for over twenty years – the Missouri Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Fall Conference.

This past week I had the opportunity to attend the annual meeting once again and found myself looking forward to it as much this year as I did the very first year I attended.   So, what is it that keeps me going back each year?

For every triumph a teacher faces, there are moments of despair. One such moment came for me at the end of a math final I gave last semester, at the community college where I teach. As students finished their finals I sat at my desk, watching the stack of stapled pages grow. One student lingered, and I looked up to find Susan, a non-traditional student in her late forties, who was finishing her first semester in our community college. Her face was a window into her sadness and disappointment. Attached to her final was a handwritten note that read, “It’s not your fault. I just can’t do math.”
