Math and English: More in Common than Different

I regularly am faced with the ubiquitous look of puzzlement when I explain that I teach middle school math and English. This dismay comes from one of three misconceptions. The first is that middle school students can be challenging. The second presumes that it must be difficult to teach students who don’t want to be in class because some really don’t like math or reading. Mostly, this suggests that math and language arts do not go together. This idea permeates the workforce as well. While I have received several job opportunities because of my math and English certifications, I have also had to pass up opportunities for math-science teachers in STEM programs. Yet, I’ve met plenty of science teachers who balk at the idea of teaching math, so clearly math and science aren’t inherently connected.
