It happened again today. I turned on my phone after school and there was a message waiting for me from one of my high school (HIGH SCHOOL) friends. [FYI — I spend all day in high school as a teacher but high school for me as a student was back in the days before graphing calculators.] This high school friend needed math advice for one of her children. Somehow I am the expert on all things mathy for my non-math friends. It made me remember a piece I wrote a few years back, which still resonates today. You can find my piece by clicking the link below. http://www.admissionsquest.com/onboardingschools/2011/03/developing-a-love-of-math-in-younger-students.html

You had me at “High School friend”!
Yes, but you weren’t the one seeking counsel!
