Mrs. Urmi Upadhyaya


This is my 2nd year teaching at RPHS and my 8th year of teaching. I love teaching World 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 a 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 the world.

I was born and raised in Chicago but I now call Houston home. Aside from teaching, I enjoy baking and traveling and exploring the world with my husband and 3 daughters. I am looking forward to an exicting year of learning! Go Panthers!
