Growing up with a mother in the education field had a tremendous impact on Isolina’s life. Inspired by her mother’s example, she applied for the Summer Teaching Fellowship at Uncommon Schools. It was her first time working in a real classroom—and she loved it. Isolina learned a lot and knew that after college graduation, Uncommon Schools was the place for her.
Isolina is excited to go into school every day to see her students thrive. The minute she sees her classroom of scholars, everything else in her life just melts away. In addition to teaching a third grade classroom, Isolina also coaches a team of teachers, observing their practice and providing feedback to help them grow.
“I think that what really makes Uncommon special is that we’re focused not only on growing our students, but on growing ourselves as educators.”
“We serve students who are ESL, we serve students across the autism spectrum, we serve students with a number of exceptionalities—and I was so excited to join a team where all of our students are immersed in one classroom.”
