The ideal candidate is passionate about working with young people, holds high expectations for themselves and others, believes that all young people can succeed, enjoys math, feels comfortable explaining math to young people, and is interested in showing them how math is relevant to a variety of disciplines, careers, and jobs.

Visual aids (charts, graphs, photos, diagrams, pictures, etc.)

Experiential activities (for data collection, examples of the concept utilized in the real world, etc.)
