# Mathematics. The people who always say I’m just not a math person…

Loving math is a beautiful thing and I will never understand people who always say “I’m just not a math person.” when they learn I am a math teacher. I am wondering, if I was Usain Bolt and they knew who I was, would they tell me “I am not a sprinter, I can not run 100 meters in under 10 seconds.”? Obviously not. I could understand why a man would steal to feed his family, but for me, it is impossible to understand someone who is bad at math but quite happy about it!
