Hello Alexandra: I applaud you for wanting to major in Math. It is part of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) program. My daughter is a first year High School Math Teacher. Although she didn't go to the "highest ranking" math colleges & universities she did get two (2) job offers at the same time while on Spring Break during her last year of college. Both offers were on demand while during the interview process. She earned her degree from one of the local universities here in Georgia.
