“To improve the world, you must work to improve the people within it.” – Maurice Myers
I had the pleasure of working with Maurice Myers for three years when I was teaching. Maurice was regarded highly by students, faculty and the administration. His devotion to his student’s was intense and he has committed his life to improving the lives of others.
Maurice is attending the Education Doctorate program at California State University, Fullerton and currently teaches 11th grade AP and College Prep English at Ayala High School in Chino Hills, California. His expertise is in essay writing and reading comprehension. He loves reading, martial arts, attending grad school and traveling.
Education, family and social justice are his passions and he loves helping kids realize that they are capable of learning and doing more than they thought of before entering his classroom each year.
As an educator, Maurice realizes the importance that education plays in developing our youth. ”Student achievement,” Maurice says, “encompasses more than doing well on standardized testing; a student’s preparation in life must include more than just ‘test prep’ but ‘life prep.’”
Although Maurice is a classroom teacher, he does believe that tutoring “has the capability of greatly impacting students and improving their academic performances.”
I am happy to call Maurice not only a friend, but one of The Tutoring Solution’s Innovative Educators. His devotion to his student’s is profound and he is one of the most genuine guys I know. Thank you Maurice for your efforts in improving the lives of the student’s that walk through your classroom.
