Judith Crompton, from Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in St. Catharines, believes in second chances. Any student can understand math and those who already do can perform better. One of the ways she shows this is by letting students opt for follow-up courses and by giving them a second shot at exams and assignments. Even students who are firmly convinced that mathematics is not for them respond to her teaching, and requests from students for timetable changes so they can get into her class are a regular event. Ms. Crompton has also promoted improvements to the curriculum and mathematics competitions and has recently implemented a tutoring program at her school.
