Mrs. Urmi Upadhyaya (ooh-pod-yaai)
This is my 11th year of teaching and my 5th year here at RPHS. I love teaching geography and bringing a global perspective to freshmen. I feel that it is important for us to be aware of the dynamic world around us and do our part in creating an awareness that allows us to cultivate global citizenship. It is important to be life-long learners and I want my students to be amazed by all that is happening in our world.
I was born and raised in Chicago but I now call Houston home. Aside from teaching, I enjoy baking, traveling and exploring the world with my husband and 3 daughters. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning! Go Panthers!
