Early Start Teachers

A team of Palo Alto Unified School District educators and middle school teachers help us kick off the school year by leading and co-teaching our afterschool classes with our Stanford student leaders. They are a familiar and welcoming presence for our students and great mentors for our Stanford leaders.
