A good number of people have asked why I seem to be so obsessed with the number twenty-three. I’ll devote a few paragraphs here to give you the condensed version of why the prime number has become a big part of my life. I don’t expect anyone to claim any significance the way I have, but will ask for a few minutes of your time to give you some background.
For twenty-five of my twenty-nine years in the public school classroom, math was one of the subjects I taught. To be honest, I never really was that good in math, but my struggle to understand concepts I believe helped me to reach those that were going through similar struggles. It was the “I’ve been where you are and know how you feel” mentality. So it suffices to say numbers have always been an important part of my life.
