I feel like the professors at BYU-Idaho really took the time to help me understand the material and took time for me. This made me a better teacher to my students. I also made life-long friends in some of my math education courses. It’s nice to have friends with similar interests and standards as me. I loved BYU-Idaho, and I loved the math program there. I would recommend it to anyone!Amy C.,
