The Workshop School
“I love the power of deconstructing something people think of as black/white and right/wrong and turning it into a nuanced problem that takes precision, communication skills and problem solving strategies to approach. I also recognize that math is an area that is such an automatic turnoff to many people, particularly women of color, that I wanted to change the way my peers and future students think about math.”
While pursuing her undergraduate degree, Swetha worked as a teaching assistant for three years. She also mentored first through fifth grade students from Belmont Charter School with a group of peers and later coordinated the mentoring team from Bryn Mawr. She began her career as a math teacher at The Workshop School during the 2016–2017 school year.
Swetha enjoys playing the Indian classical violin, an instrument she’s played for the past 18 years.
