From the article:

“When asked how she tries to teach math to students who don’t like it or are not good at it, Volz shared that “’I try to encourage students to be open-minded and I try to get to know my students and invite them to come and get help early in each semester.’ Volz says she cares about every students’ understanding of mathematics “because math shows up in every aspect of life, so I want my students to not fear math.”
