Nadjya Facey has been teaching mathematics in the Boston Public Schools for over five years. She received a Bachelor of Arts for Music/Business Management from Berklee College of Music in 2006, a Masters of Management with a concentration of Business from Cambridge College in 2010, and a Masters of Secondary Education from UMass Boston in 2016.
Nadjya has a background in the performing arts with various styles of dance, music, spoken word, and acting. After working nine years in Corporate America as an Administrative Assistant for an International Investment Firm, Nadjya changed careers in 2015 to become a math teacher for BPS. Math is a communication language that transcends cultural, political, and economic boundaries and it is important to Nadjya to help transform the lives of youth in the communities of Boston and teach them concepts that they can apply to their daily lives, despite where they come from. As Marian Wright Edelman said, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.”
