Changa Bey: Why I Teach

Upper School History Teacher Changa Bey presented at an Upper School assembly as part of the regular series “Why I Teach.” In his speech, Mr. Bey described how he moved across the country, from New York to St. Louis, and how he was delighted by the hospitality and connectedness he found with the communities of each city. He explained that being able to learn from people who have different backgrounds and perspectives than him made him want to pay that knowledge forward to his students. Bey said, “As I think about why I teach here at MICDS, it’s because of this community that constantly pushes us to be better people by challenging our preconceived notions.”
