Hello my name is Tashuany Rodriguez former 2019 student. I always had a positive attitude towards high school in general. But never had a positive views or understanding on the subject Geometry or math for that matter. which that was my biggest challenge that its when I meet Mr. Zartman during those struggling times. he made me see math a different way with his patience and understanding. He use different methods such as, games khaoot it , real life scenarios etc. which in time I began to like it. There were moments where I would ask for extra assignments because he teaches math a different way. He always said to me " IF you tell yourself that you cant do something you will never know do it". " But if you say to yourself that you can do it or at least push yourself to try there is nothing that you can not accomplish in life." which those words made me the man I am today with confidence to always reach and set new goals. further more because he made me see the math subject differently which i would always be grateful for. I am in college now with more confidence thanks to Mr. Zartmans teachings and always looking for better ways to teach his students math and encourage them to always looks for better ways to stay positive. Thank you for everything and making me see things differently and to not be afraid to ask for help in times of need. forever grateful.
