Darya holds a double bachelor’s degree in philosophy and the history of mathematics from St. John’s College. Darya has taught at the Girls’ School since 2008. She is also a self-defense instructor at Resolve. Darya loves getting to read a nonfiction history book.
Darya teaches middle school because in sixth grade, her favorite teacher opened her mind with concepts like Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, civil disobedience, and the value of diversity. At eleven years old, Darya said to herself, “If I ever teach this age group, I am going to treat them with respect, knowing they are ready for big ideas.”
