TOAD Talk: My Journey to Thacher

Fisher Fellow Sayra Trejo shares her lessons learned on the way to Thacher. 
An honor and responsibility for the TOAD (teacher on active duty) most Mondays is to give what’s called a TOAD Talk at the day’s Assembly. The topics of each talk are completely up to the TOAD and have ranged from sea slugs and feminism to vampire bats and music. This year’s first TOAD Talk was presented by Sayra Trejo, one of Thacher’s Fisher Fellows for the 2021-2022 school year. Fisher Fellows are early-career teachers who join the Thacher community for two years to gain hands-on experience in the classroom coupled with the personal, expert mentorship that is critical to the growth of beginning teachers. 
Ms. Trejo spoke to students about her journey to Thacher and not giving up on your dreams.
