Teaching was not the initial calling for Dierre. He graduated college with the hopes pursuing a career in public policy in either health care, law reform, or education. Lacking familiarity in the realm of educational policy, Dierre decided to spend a year volunteering full time in an East New York elementary school under the AmeriCorps program City Year. It was here where he fell in love with educating the young minds of tomorrow’s leaders. Dierre is currently in his 7th year of teaching where he works with middle and high school teachers on curriculum developing and establishing a culture of learning in the classroom.
