I believe a teacher’s role in society should be to nurture, push and guide young people in order to help mold them into their best selves. ”

Dana’s Story

Teaching Discipline


Why Mathematics

“Math is a subject that I have always liked due to the fact that there is always a solution that can be attained. Throughout my schooling, it was also a subject that I understood and could help others with. Now that I teach math, I push students to see that the beauty of the subject is that there are multiple different paths we can go down to reach the same destination.”
