Meet The Teacher: Linda Reyes, Cornerstone Charter Academy

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: Linda Reyes

Teaches:10th-12th grade Mathematics

Has been teaching for:13 years

Favorite part about teaching:Favorite part of teaching is the connection, relationships, and the vulnerability of learning together.

Being “FTK” means to me: Being FTK means the opportunity to collaborate and come together to fight for the kids and their families. The chance to show love to others and the people who can’t by pouring and making a difference for the next generation.

Favorite part of Dance Marathon: My favorite part of the Dance Marathon is seeing all of my students come together as servant leaders with the mission of showing love to kids and their families. I am able to see the final product of their hard work of being part of a growing community that dances as they make a difference.
