" Chicago was suddenly too big and crowded for our tastes, and we wanted to live in closer proximity to the great outdoors. Since moving, I have continued to pursue educational opportunities. My current projects involve designing and teaching public speaking courses for Wedgwood children, providing volunteer homework support for refugees at the Somali Community Service Coalition, and working with Varsity Tutors. In the future, I hope to obtain my master's and doctorate, work in public education or museum studies, and teach History at the college level, for it is my belief that understanding our actions in the past is essential to ...

" For the past two years I taught mathematics at the middle and high school level as a Teach For America corp member in the Dallas Independent School District.

" I truly believe that every student has the ability to achieve success and to master any subject that they set their mind to with the proper mentality and the necessary assistance.
