A Del Guercio-Moran

Student at MCDS
Born in Mexico to Cuban and Costa Rican parents, Amanda seeks to make a difference on the world around her by helping those around her realize they must celebrate all the different identities that live within.

Bella Brod

Student at MCDS
Bella has always had a passion for working with children and a yearning to learn about psychology, but it wasn't until she took a course with UCLA and volunteered as a teacher assistant in a kindergarten class, that she knew she could combine the two into -what would become- a rabbit hole of knowledge, curiosity, and passion!

Caroline Jiang

Student at MCDS
From a young age, Caroline has been tinkering with legos, robots, and other toys. These experiences helped develop her passion for STEM and led to her joining the robotics club and develop the EI^2 honor society. She hopes to share the joys of innovation, analytical thinking, and problem solving with others.

Danielle Apfelbaum

Danielle has interned as a lower school teaching assistant for three years in Miami Country Day Lower School. Additionally, Danielle serves as the President of Generation SOS. She has a passion for literature and social activism.

Ella Gilderman

Ella started teaching lower schoolers as part of the Lower School X Term internship, and this experience ignited her love for teaching social-emotional learning. She has been dedicated to developing a comprehensive curriculum ever since. Not content with just reaching students within the lower school, she expanded this essential learning to the middle and high school levels. By designing engaging hands-on activities, she has empowered students to apply their social-emotional skills in real-world scenarios.

M Escobar

Zoe Terry

Zoe serves as the founder of Zoe's Dolls and has been working on Zoe's Dolls for almost 12 years, ever since she was bullied for the color of her skin and the texture of her hair.
