Mrs. Kirkham, formerly Miss Tenney, started her second year of teaching math at Provo High after getting hitched this summer (Congrats, Mrs. Kirkham!) Today, she shares with us her reasons for teaching:
I originally started teaching because I love helping others, and I especially love helping others understand new and/or challenging concepts. Math has always been one of my favorite subjects, and I particularly love helping students who don’t like math, or who don’t feel like math is their strongest subject, to feel successful. I continue to be inspired to teach by helping others feel successful and confident, but I also love the challenge teaching gives myself to find better ways of teaching new and difficult concepts to others. Teaching is never the same and that’s what I love about it!
We are thrilled to have Mrs. Kirkham teaching math at Provo High!
