Kaffenate Math

I have been a math teacher for almost 20 years at all age levels, homeschool through college, private schools and public schools. I've taught gifted students, challenged students, and students who thought math was BORING. My favorite students to teach, though, are the ones who think they can't do it. 10% of all Proceeds for Kaffenate Math go to this AWESOME horse rescue: https://www.facebook.com/TAPSfordrafts/
