It’s like reading a survey of firefighters in which, when asked about the greatest limitation on how they fight fires, 38.79% responded “all the fires” and 23.56% responded “being a first responder.”
See those top two are part of doing your job, not an impediment to it. Even better, while the firefighters have no influence over the number of fires they fight, teachers have plenty of influence over a student’s interest in mathematics.
