Ms. Anthony is so excited to join Equitas Academy #5 as a Founding Kindergarten Teacher! At Equitas Academy, Ms. Anthony found a school whose mission statement aligned with her values and service to education. She believes that all students no matter what circumstances or backgrounds they come from deserve access to a high-quality education and a rigorous school experience. She was the first in her family to graduate college, she attended the University of Houston obtaining a Bachelor of Science in education. Her experiences attending and volunteering at inner-city public schools gave her a clear perspective on the need for high quality, caring, and dedicated teachers to serve students and their families in order to get them to and through college. With a strong passion to help the children of the world, Ms. Anthony decided to pursue her passion for education to become a teacher that prepares students with a solid academic foundation. Ms. Anthony spent her summers volunteering at summer day camps and participating in organizations such as big brother, big sister and the Boys and Girls Club. She has experience with an array of elementary students from all walks of life. Outside of the classroom, she likes to go to the beach, travel to foreign places, and enjoys eating good food! She is looking forward to a great school year and a successful year with all scholars!
