## Who is Mr. Curlette

I love teaching! Each day is a great day when I have the chance to motivate 30 young adults how to think using mathematics. My students find learning though activities and discovery a challenge, however, they feel the success, confidence, and better self-esteem about math once they understand each lesson. Therefore, my teaching is about students feeling successful about math and building up their mathematical self-esteem.
