My name is Makalla Cordova, and I am a 6th grade science teacher. I graduated from DSST Public Schools: Green Valley Ranch in 2016. I am currently in my third year of teaching at DSST GVR. I am determined to create a place where young people can be themselves and feel successful. One of the largest takeaways from my time at DSST is always to push myself to be who I want to be, and I am excited to help people of all ages realize that for themselves.
