Get to Know Marie Gardner, our Newest Teacher!

MarieWhat is your role at MHYC?
My role at MHYC is the math teacher.

What attracted you to MHYC?
I was interested in the role because I had heard such wonderful things about the design of the program and its purpose to promote a healthy community, environment, and focus on future success rather than past failure. I really enjoy working with everyone that I have met. What a wonderful world it would be if everywhere were like MHYC.

What is your favorite aspect of being a teacher?
I love, love, love showing students they can learn things they were convinced they could not (such as math).

What would people be surprised to know about you?
Hmmm…I LOVE to dance. Looking at me you would be convinced I have no rhythm (which I don’t – all self-taught).

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
To be flexible. If something isn’t working one way, try it another. Keep trying different ways to reach the same goal and you will eventually find your path.
