Southeast Education Student Shares Dream of Teaching Math with Board of Regents

Southeast Missouri State University senior Ke-La Harris of St. Louis, Missouri, says the Lift for Life Academy in St. Louis, Missouri, inspired her to pursue a career as a mathematics teacher. Harris, a middle school education major with a mathematics concentration, recently told Southeast's Board of Regents that her passion for numbers was sparked by Lift for Life mathematics teacher Kenan Morrison, the only African American mathematics teacher she's ever had. At Southeast, she's taken that spark, and with encouragement and guidance, has begun shaping her future as an educator.
