Kindergarten Lead Teacher
Hi! My name is Sofia Naseem and I’m thrilled to be joining the Citizens of the World Mar Vista community as a Lead Kindergarten teacher. I’m originally from the South, where I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Educational Studies.
Upon graduating, I was accepted into Teach For America in Kansas City, Missouri. I began my career in education working for KIPP in both Kansas City and Los Angeles.
I moved here to LA in 2018, and now consider southern California home! I don’t believe it was a coincidence that my journey as an educator brought me to Citizens of the World because as I grow as an educator and as a person, a more holistic approach to learning is an aspect I really resonate with. My personal values align with CWC’s core values of Excellence, Diversity, Community, Change, and Authenticity.
Outside of my work, you can find me hanging out with my dog, practicing yoga, making travel plans, trying a new restaurant, and spending quality time with friends.
