Telannia is an Algebra I instructor in a 9th grade academy in an inner city high school. Before teaching, she worked in the corporate world for over 10 years. Some of her experiences include being a reporter, salesman for classified advertising, account manager for an Internet start up, sales assistant for Sprint, account manager for AT&T, financial planner and freelance writer.
In the summer of 2007, Telannia had the idea to convert her classroom to a corporation. The students would be math consultants to individuals, families and organizations around the world. The purpose was to teach her students that all their core classes have real world applications. While learning Algebra I, the students would solve real world problems in teams. The teams consist of three or four students with one student being a manager. Students are also SMEs (Subject Matter Experts).
