FOUNDING KINDERGARTEN TEACHER, CHARACTER LEAD, AND TEAM LEAD

Kiara Chavez joined Brilla Veritas in the Spring of 2018 as a teacher and Character Lead. She is now Character Lead, Team Lead, and Kindergarten Teacher at our newest elementary school, Brilla Caritas. She has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Education from Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY, and a master’s degree for Special Education from the Relay Graduate School of Education. She was a Campus Campaign Coordinator for Teach for America, which led her to join the New York TFA Corps in 2017. Born and raised in the Mott Haven and University Heights areas of the Bronx, she lives to positively impact the lives of all whom she encounters. She also attended St. Nicholas of Tolentine in middle school as well as the other elementary schools along Andrews Avenue. She is incredibly excited to bring her teaching experience full circle as she has gone to school and grown up in the Bronx areas. She loves exercising, dancing, spending time with her dance team, and other close friends, as well as honing new cooking recipes.
