Hiya! My full name is Mina Flores Daneshvar and I’m originally from Southern California (San Bernardino/Redlands). I moved to Tulsa to attend the University of Tulsa to study petroleum engineering and fell in love with the city so much I haven’t wanted to leave! But I’ll always root for my LA teams above all else. My cat Jian (Gigi) is the fuzziest little floof who loves cuddles, especially when I’m in the middle of playing video games. I’m a big ol’ nerd who loves to learn as much as I can about anything I can.

I teach because education and access to knowledge is freeing so should be as accessible as possible. And to show how math isn’t scary and describes all of existence.

My teaching career began in China in 1987. Three years later, at the American Academy in Istanbul, Turkey, I adopted my life’s motto: “I want to dance with the whole world!” Include everyone, exclude no one. I have been devoted to my partner in life for over 30 years, the last 20 of those in our little home on the river bend near downtown Tulsa.

My passion for teaching is deeply connected to helping students become better global citizens, equipped with the essential critical thinking tools needed to imagine and pursue their future with greater confidence.
