Many applauds teacher’s unique approach to helping a child struggling with maths homework

Meanwhile, previously reported that when it comes to learning, the importance of great teachers can't be underestimated as they play a role in a child’s foundational learning and social development. An inspiring example of a teacher dedicated to helping her learners through their learning difficulties is Bonnie (@yafavoriteaunty), who recently shared she handled a situation in which one of her learners was struggling with maths.

Taking to Twitter without revealing the child’s identity, Bonnie shared a photo of a homework page where one of her ‘babies’, as she affectionately calls them, didn’t do his work. The young boy made a note on his homework page indicating that he found division hard.
