“Restoring Faith in Humanity and Yourself in 5 Million Easy Steps” by Brenna DiCola, ISB Math Teacher

Middle School · April 27, 2020

Since graduating from Swarthmore College, Brenna has worked with students in grades K-8 at private schools around Philadelphia, in Lawrence, KS, and in Madrid. She has taught everything from English and Social Studies to Science and Technology, but her passion is Math Education. This past summer, Brenna moved to New York and found a home at ISB, where she currently teaches 6th and 7th Grade Math and serves as Head of the Middle School Math Department. In 2015, Brenna took a five-month hiatus from the classroom to hike the Appalachian Trail, a 2,189.2-mile trek through fourteen states. During ISB’s 2020 Pecha Kucha Evening in early March, Brenna shared about her journey and the many lessons she learned along the way in her presentation: “Restoring Faith in Humanity and Yourself in 5 Million Easy Steps.”
