# Of course I have problems, I’m a math teacher

Okay, that’s an old joke, but I really do have a problem.

We place some really unrealistic expectations on teachers, and people who teach math and English get the worst end of it in my experience.

# I teach statistics and that means that I’m going to assume students have some basic knowledge of algebra.

If a student doesn’t remember or never learned what 7! Means, I can handle that.
