Cheers to Volunteers! – Moe Chizari

Teaching math might not be everyone’s idea of happiness, but for Moe Chizari, it’s exactly what the semi-retired accountant and volunteer loves to do. Moe spends his free time working with Literacy KC’s program, High School Equivalency Test preparedness.

He is genuinely happy to be able to help students attain their GEDs and reach graduation
