I was delighted to read this paragraph on in an article titled “Success Stories: I Changed Careers”:

English instructor to multiplication guru
“I was a [university] English composition instructor. With endless office hours and a deluge of e-mails from students every night, I felt it was time to pursue my dream. I had a big idea — a better way of teaching the times tables. As any parent knows or remembers, learning the multiplication tables represents a dread rite of passage for many children. When my son struggled with rote memorization, I invented a method based on easy number patterns. I published “Teach Your Child the Multiplication Tables, Fast, Fun & Easy!” to help other families and launched my company, TeaChildMath. This journey has been fantastic!” — Eugenia Francis, founder, TeaChildMath
