I never thought of myself as a "math person." In fact, if you have read my essay under "the LD Librarian," you may realize that I deliberately portrayed myself as someone "who is just doesn't 'get' math." My math attitude shifted with an expanded understanding of my "non-verbal learning disability" diagnosis. Suddenly, I realized my confusion had nothing to do with being nor not being a "math person." The problem is simply that there was a mismatch between my learning style and how I math was taught while I was growing up. I became interested in learning about how children acquire mathematical language. At first this was merely in hopes of finding a way to teach myself better math skills, but I soon realized that I wanted to expand beyond that to help children start off with a better math foundation that I received. Luckily for me, my growing interest in math corresponded to a general growing interest in the field in incorporating teaching math skills into library programming.
