Mrs. Harper is excited to join the educators at Equitas Academy #2 as a 6th grade Science and Math teacher. She grew up in the suburbs of the Bay Area, attended college at UCLA, and worked in a variety of fields before deciding that the best way she could make a positive impact on the her community was through the education field. She spent a year and a half as a first and second grade teacher in Phoenix, Arizona, and is thrilled to be back in the Golden State and continue working with scholars. She believes that all students can achieve whatever they set their minds to accomplish, and loves watching them grow both academically and emotionally. If she’s not teaching, you can probably find her listening to music, painting, or spending time with her husband and friends!
