Spiritual lessons in math class

JUST BEFORE THE START of my feshman year in high school, my mother and I decided that I should begin going to the local public school, rather than the private one I had been attending.

After I transferred my files and sat for a few subject tests, the school placed me in an honors math class that was one year ahead of my fellow students. While I was excited for this challenge, the math teacher did not feel the same way. Upon completing roll call on the first day of class, he noted my year and declared, "Ha! This subject is already difficult for the sophomores. Good luck to you." That didn't set a great tone for the semester.
