Teach For America

Corps Member

I am an early childhood educator on the South Side of Chicago. I became passionate about education equity as a student in the public education system in rural Ohio, who felt that my opportunities to receive a quality education were limited based on my zip code. I feel strongly that every student, every where should have access to public schools that give them boundless life possibilities.
