Look around you and see how many people are on their phones right now. Unbelievable, right? Just back in the 1990s people survived without them, but why is it that teenagers...

In February, I interviewed Ms. Öman, to give students and parents an insight into what kind of mathematics teacher they have the pleasure of working with. As I interviewed Christine, I came to know a lot more about her as a person and it created a clear and fascinating image about the person she is. Ms. Öman (full name Christine Marie Joséphine Öman), is turning 44 this year, and was born in the northeast of France near the German border. When she grew up in France, she spoke fluent French and German, then moved to London at the age of 23. She stayed there for almost 4 years and then moved to Sweden, Stockholm.
