I’m glad I’m teaching maths

When people find out I’m a teacher, they always ask me what subject I
teach. Sometimes I facetiously say, “First of all, I’m a teacher of
children.” This normally gets a wry smile; then they ask me again what
subject I teach. When I tell them it’s maths, the normal reaction is to
tell me about their own school experience. For the ones who didn’t like
maths this can go on for quite a long time, and turn into a sort of
apologetic confessional about why they never liked it, or that they
didn’t “get it”.
