What originally inspired you to join the Monarch board and why did you become involved with Monarch Institute Board of Directors?


I became involved with the Monarch board through the Rice University Board Fellowship program. I will have the privilege of sitting on the Monarch board for one year because of this fellowship program. I am a teacher at YES Prep, a charter school in Houston that serves under-privileged students and prepares them for college. I am extremely passionate about education and about giving ALL students access to a quality education. I am thrilled to see how I can help Monarch and what I can learn from this board fellowship experience.
