The scarf represents the color of our school, but also of a culture, a passion for something and a background. It brings back those roots that were once in a different location. Now they’re here in Kansas City, and they’re here to stay.

    Why I Teach

    Mainly, my decision to become a teacher was shaped by my two passions: the calling for serving the underserved and my love for mathematics. My favorite part of teaching is when a student who historically underperforms in mathematics starts to experience success in my classroom—when that same student finally loses the phobia in mathematics. My advice to future teachers is to ask for support. You are not alone in this journey. There are always helping hands if you are willing to ask.
