Ms. Fateri is very excited to join Equitas Academy #3 as a founding third grade teacher! Ms. Fateri graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Special Education and her CA Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential. Throughout her time at LMU, she worked with K-5 students at WISH Charter Elementary and as a tutor at 826LA. Ms. Fateri feels proud to have found a school whose mission and vision align with her values and teaching philosophy. Previous to Equitas, Ms. Fateri’s experience as an educational therapist gave her the opportunity to work closely with scholars in grades K-12 and their families to ensure college readiness. She believes that all students deserve access to a rigorous and achievement-based school experience and is looking forward to working as a team with her scholars and their families. Ms. Fateri believes that all scholars are capable of success and makes it her personal mission to ensure they believe they can succeed. When she is not teaching, you can find Ms. Fateri at the beach with her dog, Theo, browsing the aisles of Barnes and Noble or spending time with her friends and family.
