Meet The Teacher: Gaby Torres, Viera High School

This post is one in a series of “Meet the Teacher” blogs celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4-8, 2020. The teachers featured in this series are K-12 educators across Central Florida who also serve as the Campus Advisor for their school’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon. In addition to their responsibilities as K-12 teachers, they guide Dance Marathon students through a year of raising funds and awareness for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, encouraging and challenging them as leaders, and instilling in them a sense of philanthropy.

Meet The Teacher: Gaby Torres

Teaches: Math and Leadership, 9th-12th grades

Has been teaching for: 13.5 years

Favorite part about teaching: The interaction with kids. Seeing their faces when they accomplish something great.

Being “FTK” means to me: It means changing lives at the school, hospital, and community. I love exposing them to the fact that there are others that have needs far greater than those they go through that seem like it’s the end of the world.

Favorite part of Dance Marathon: Seeing my kid’s faces at reveal.
