7th Grade Math Teacher
Salute! My name is Salif Doubare and I was born in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire. I immigrated to Chicago at the age of 6 where I was bred and raised on the West Side. I started in ESL classes and through education, I’ve journeyed from West Africa to the West Coast where I finished my BA at Pomona College in Claremont. My success in America is attributed and correlates with my success in many types of schools I’ve attended i.e. public, charter, magnet, private, etc. So I subscribe to the education model as a tool for transforming one’s self, family, community and eventually culture! I am also the co-founder of BLOC, (Building Leaders on Campus). BLOC is a crucial resource for self-identified marginalized—but in no way marginal—students. I am very excited to join the Aurum Prep family.
