Brittany Rhodes

It’s Our Anniversary!

"I know sometimes we don't like to ask questions because we don't want to look "dumb," but I'd much rather look "dumb" than be confused, agonizing, and making the same mistake over and over (and, as a result, getting more and more frustrated with math as a whole)! It doesn't have to be that way."
