As a teacher, I feel it’s my responsibility to help develop productive members of society—people who will continually learn to become better versions of themselves; people who will use their strengths and passions to create a better society for everyone to live in.”

Thach’s Story

Teaching Discipline


Why Mathematics

“I love patterns and riddles, which inevitably leads me to love math. I believe this discipline is under-appreciated and misrepresented in school, which leads many students to have a negative disposition towards math. My goal in pursuing this discipline is to make math accessible to all students and to infect them with the passion to continue to learn and do math.”
