About Alisha

I'm a recent college graduate living in Newark, NJ. I work at Eagle Academy, an all-male public school, as an AmeriCorps Teaching Fellow. My primary focus is middle school math, but I love mentoring students and getting to know them and their interests. As a senior in college, I was a Teaching Assistant for the Anthropology department supporting lab classes. I'm passionate about having students develop an interdisciplinary mindset (one subject is related to another).

In my spare time, I volunteer with a literacy program in Newark supporting a variety of age ranges (K-8), but mostly primary age (K-3) and high school students with college readiness and math through Rutgers Newark.

Approved subjects
