As a student I considered myself “bad at math”. The memorization and computation techniques I was taught did not explain the why of the solution. I found math boring and uninteresting.
As a teacher, I am much more excited about math because guiding a student through to the understanding of a mistake and the eventual correct solution makes me believe that one less person will go through their school years believing they are “bad” at math.
