Ms. Silva currently teaches 8th grade English at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, along with the Introduction to Business elective. “BASIS Independent is the most unique and inspiring school I have ever had the honor of working for. I believe that we don't give our students enough credit. Even our younger students can be challenged at a college level,” she says.
