Let's go to the origin story if you will. How did this idea come to you. You've been a teacher reading and writing your obviously married to journalists censure that has an influence so talk about how you came up with this idea and how you made it happen so i retired from teaching in two thousand eleven. But i wasn't ready to leave literacy or education. That was really important to me and so i tried a few different volunteer opportunities and nothing was quite right and then i read an article in the new york times about the launching of a new museum of mathematics in new york city..
