Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rita Lahiri

I started my professional career in New York’s banking sector. After a few years, I transitioned to teaching mathematics with the NYC Teaching Fellows while obtaining my Masters in Math Education. I moved to Virginia in 2005 and taught at an IB high school in Arlington, VA.  

Through the years, I have taught subjects ranging from pre-algebra to precalculus and IB math studies. I have worked with a diverse group and range of students from different backgrounds and different levels of ability. I believe everyone can learn to appreciate the beauty of mathematics. As a teacher, my goal is to make mathematics come to life and ignite mathematical curiosity for students. I encourage students to discover connections in mathematics and develop a conceptual understanding of the foundation of mathematics. 

Numbers are everywhere. If we open ourselves up to learning and engaging in the study of mathematics, the opportunities are limitless.
