Who: Sesha Haynes
What: Sesha says her daily goal is that her students walk in class knowing their teacher believes in them and will assist in any way to make them succeed. Math can be one of those subjects where many students seem to hit a wall. She believes it is her job as an educator to tear down that wall, or at least make it easier to climb over. She has been recognized by the district as one of the top leaders in test scores for mathematics.
Where: Haynes began her career in Foster Youth Services at the San Diego County Office of Education in 2003, all while working as an instructional assistant at Castle Park Middle School. She is now teaching math and transitions and health in fundamentals, at Sweetwater High. She is also the cheer coach, track and field coach, advisor for the Black Student Union, advisor for the Unified Devil Buddies and advisor for the Class of 2018!
Why: She says she was born to be a teacher, and that teaching is in her blood. Teaching is not a profession for her; it is her passion. Everyday she strives to make every student feel successful and accepted.
