David Mantell

David Mantell is currently a sixth grade math teacher at MS 2 in Brooklyn and working towards receiving an MS in Education. David grew up in California and attended the beautiful UC Berkeley where he majored in history. While in school, he became increasingly interested in issues surrounding inequity in access to quality public education and the systemic reasons for its prevalence in communities across the country. After college, he mentored middle school students in Oakland through an AmeriCorps program, which eventually led him to apply for New York City Teaching Fellows and move to the east coast.
