Hi guys!!! My name is Tanesha Terry. I am originally from Chicago, IL and was raised in Arlington, TX. I attended Howard University in Washington, D.C. As an undergraduate, I majored in television production.

After graduation, I joined Teach for America. I spent two years as a teacher in the Special Education department; I taught math and social studies to 7th and 9th graders. I also had the pleasure of coaching the varsity cheerleading squad. 

Once my commitment with Teach for America ended, I decided  to go back to school. I decided to attend Mizzou for a variety of reasons. The main reason was because I felt like a family member versus a lsat score or a GPA. 

I've adjusted to law school and life in Columbia quite well. Mizzou is an overall great place, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me.
