A teacher should serve as a leader and a role model while nurturing the minds of their students and helping them develop their own ideals.”

Amelia’s Story

Teaching Disciplines

Mathematics and Physics 

Why Mathematics/Physics 

Subjects in the STEM fields have always come easy to me, but I realized that wasn’t the case for everyone, so I like being able to help others. I want to be able to help all students reach their full potential.”
