DaNaija Little loves STEM! In 2019, her final semester of college at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she began working for a nonprofit organization as a STEM Teacher to underrepresented 6th – 12th students throughout the City of Chicago. Six months later, she received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago in Mathematics and Computer Science. Ms. Little is a compassionate person, driven to use her education and experiences to serve her community and she can’t to see where her journey as a Math Teacher at Leo High School takes her. Outside of teaching, she enjoys spending time with my nieces, trying new restaurants with friends, watching Marvel movies with her dad and going ATV riding and jet skiing with her family.
