Math Corp is Springboard to Teaching Career

Kim Le
Kim Le, Former Math Corps Member

Kim Le was looking for direction in her career. With a degree in math and a few years’ experience in retail management, she was curious about teaching, but realized she needed to build professional skills and earn money for graduate school. Math Corps provided her with relevant experience and was a perfect transition to teaching.

Kim served two years at American Indian Magnet School in St. Paul, a high-needs school where building relationships with students was as important as the math skills. She enjoyed getting to know her students on a personal level, and they excelled with one-on-one attention. Now a high school math teacher, Kim is grateful for her Math Corps experience.

“Math Corps made me think about what to do differently if kids didn’t understand right away,” she said. She regularly employs the skills she learned as a tutor.
