Danielli Costa, gifted math teacher at Thomas Jefferson High School, is featured on the current cover of the North Texan, the alumni magazine for the University of North Texas.

Costa was hired by the high school last spring. Her students had already seen five teachers come and go and standardized testing time loomed near.

She was ready for the challenge, in part because of the training and experience she received through UNT’s Teach North Texas program, she tells the magazine.
