I started teaching in the Fall of 1985 at a non-traditional school. I later joined AISD in January 1987, also at a non-traditional high school. I later moved to Fulmore and in the Fall of 1999 joined the Garza Staff. I enjoy sports, making crafts, writing poetry, and being with my family. I come from a family of eight and three of us are University of Texas at Austin graduates. I bleed burnt orange! I offer Algebra I, II, Geometry (Advanced also) Math Models, Financial Math, Pre Calculus, as well as STAAR and TSI support.

Mr. Kapasi's bio:  I was born in Phoenix, AZ, to Indian immigrant parents, leading to an American mind with an Indian heart.  I love the beauty and logic of mathematics and I understand that it's not for everyone.  I feel blessed to work with students at Garza HS.
