Ms. Das received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology & mathematics from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. She then worked at a neurobehavioral institute in Baltimore while tutoring part-time before finding BASIS Independent. The principles and philosophies behind the curriculum design and culture very much spoke to her.
Ms. Das spent two years working at BASIS Scottsdale among some of the best educators in the country and world, but she ultimately wanted to be closer to her family in Maryland and attend graduate school. She has joined BASIS Independent Brooklyn as a Subject Expert Teacher in math and psychology, while pursuing her Master of Science degree in neuroscience & education at Columbia University. She hopes to impart a lifelong love of learning in her students and appreciation for interdisciplinary study.
In her spare time, Ms. Das enjoys playing with her adorable puppy Leo, playing sitar, cooking, kickboxing, and dancing.
