Multiple Choice: Alumnae Spotlight on Yasmin Saban '07
While a student at the Priory, Yasmin Saban '07, had the good fortune of being taught calculus by Mirjana Jovovic. Mirjana recognized Yasmin's affinity for math and provided her the opportunity to help teach the Calculus class. Little did Yasmin realize the value of this gift and her future path.

She went on to attend Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, initially majoring in business, which she found was not to her liking. Yasmin corrected course, again with the help of her mentor Mirjana, and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Pure and Applied Mathematics followed by a Master's in Educational Technology from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.

Yasmin has come full circle and is now, herself, a well-respected educator and mentor. She is currently a teacher of Algebra II, Calculus, and AP Calculus at The Priory. Since joining our faculty in 2009, she has taught every math course available to students in grades 7 through 12, all the while exploring new technologies and teaching strategies.

Sharing information and knowledge is second nature to Yasmin and extends beyond students to include fellow teachers as well. She has given presentations to her peers at conferences held by the Online Educational Symposium for Independent Schools (OESIS), a network of more than 550 independent schools throughout the U.S. As a testament to her contribution, her fellow educators recently named Yasmin OESIS Network Leader.

Yasmin is currently working on her Ph.D. Degree at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
