Tyeisha Chavis

Tyeisha Hillana Chavis is a Special Educator at The Bronx School of Law and Finance, a school committed to the mission of preparing students for higher education through the introduction of careers in law and finance. Tyeisha built school community and heightened consciousness by coordinating the Haitian and Japanese Relief fundraising efforts. The culturally and linguistically diverse student body of her school was affected directly and indirectly by each natural disaster and thus the character of the school community was strengthened as the students became more invested in their role as global citizens. Tyiesha also worked to provide students with a creative outlet by creating the Law and Finance Step Team, which has been recognized in various competitions for its precision and unique rhythmic formations. Tyeisha looks forward to continuing her work as a public servant and establishing spheres of equitable educational practices and models that work.
