Why Mallory chose MIPS...
“I started working for MIPS in 2017 and I’m thrilled to be here! I love the commitment to excellence and student-centered vision that’s shared by the entire MIPS team. It’s exciting to be in a work culture that truly puts kids first.
I love that we have the ability to create a truly differentiated learning pathway for each unique student. I enjoy getting to work closely with students and parents. I firmly believe that parents are the best advocates and expert on their student, so I work diligently to support parents in this important role. I love giving students the one-on-one attention that they deserve. I get to take the time to meet with students on an individual basis, giving them my undivided attention – a teacher’s dream! This not only builds a stronger relationship, but it also allows me to teach more effectively and specifically to that student’s needs. Finally, I enjoy the innovative environment and fast paced growth at MIPS. We’re constantly looking to improve and expand opportunities for students. It’s amazing how much positive change can take place when you work with like-minded, forward-thinking, and passionate peers.”
