Mariana Solis was nominated by her colleague, Adrienne Brown.

Ms. Solis left her life in California and hasn't looked back. With 11 years of experience, she is determined to ignite student success by changing the face of the typical high school math teacher.

Ms. Solis came to Hawaii with a vision and growth mindset. She decided to reevaluate her own potential as a learner. This helps her students build confidence, develop positive attitudes, and, ultimately, achieve better test scores.

”Math is not an unreachable mystery, but a powerful tool that can help students develop tenacity to persevere in the face of adversity.”
