She never hesitated to try a different approach in the classroom if she thought it would benefit the students more. She’s definitely one of the most highly dedicated and knowledgeable teachers I have had."

Mentoring

"I attribute my senior year successes to the time Sunisa and I spent delving into my personhood and her guidance on managing inner conflict and peace, especially as a young adult and a woman of color.

In a manner that was relatable, raw, and genuine, Sunisa took great care to enhance my personal well-being based on the understanding that success in other areas of life would only follow from introspection and harmony with the inner self."
