Teachers help shape the minds of the future of our society, while also providing non-academic support to students in whatever form students need—someone to talk to about stress at home, their dog being sick, how to manage upcoming college apps, tips for de-stressing before tests, etc. Teachers also have the opportunity to be innovative about the ways we teach content and emphasize different ways of thinking and learning.”

Micaela’s Story

Teaching Discipline


Why Mathematics

“I want to create a learning environment where mistakes are encouraged, respected, and learned from. A place where students feel comfortable to try new things and focus on the conceptual understanding rather than the answers.”

Micaela spent three summers teaching incoming seventh-and ninth-grade students Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry through summer intensive programs.

For two and a half months, Micaela worked as a teacher’s assistant at a special education school in Valparaiso, Chile.
