Amaris Evans is an Algebra Teacher at Lindblom Math and Science Academy 

“As a Surge Fellow, I look forward to sowing the care, compassion and grace that has been gifted to me as a learner and educator. There is a shift taking place in education and I want be a part of the community that reflects the gifts and talents of the students, educators and mentors of the greater Chicago community. It is my goal as a leader to practice gratitude, provide doors of opportunity by extending my networks and most importantly strengthen my tools as a listener to build trust and empathy.”
