    Trust between students and teachers is super important, and I’m glad you mentioned it here. A lot of students come to my class pretty damaged by their earlier experiences, so it often takes awhile to get them to believe that we all want the same thing: them to understand math better!

    Re-addressing informally is great, but there’s a bit culture of “that’s not fair” at my current school. I feel like if I tried this, I would get complaints that all students didn’t receive exactly the same opportunities or problems as each other. Maybe I just need to do it and deal with whatever happens.
