There is a crossroads in middle school. Failing to navigate them can be disastrous.
Students who struggle with math in middle school stand at a crossroads, and watch as career options slowly erode. Do you know any of those students? Have you ever personally felt the frustration of math limbo?
Imagine physically standing at a crossroads and watching as one road is suddenly choked by thick undergrowth creeping across while from another road a forbidding figure in black steps across your path.
I have personally watched my daughter struggle with the frustration of having the math road blocked. As a parent it hurts to see this happen.
Our guest on the podcast struggled with math in middle school and experienced the road block. However, he experienced a one-in-a-thousand opportunity to come back to the crossroads and choose a different path. His mission in life now is to keep the cross roads open for as many middle schoolers as possible.
Today's podcast is an opportunity for a second chance. In fact, we hear second chance stories on our podcast quite frequently. If you know a teenager or a parent with a teen who needs a second math chance, subscribe to the TTI podcast in iTunes and share it with others.
