I teach math to feisty 4th and 5th grade students at Rocketship Alma Academy in San Jose, California.

Silicon Valley is a wonderful place to call home, but it's a region with stark contrasts in neighborhoods with and without rich resources. I believe that all kids should have access to an excellent education - regardless of their zip code - so I gladly left behind a successful 20-year career in high-tech marketing to help my students change their destinies.
