Introduction from the new Executive Director of TFA Nashville-Chattanooga

Dear Nashville-Chattanooga Alumni,

I’m excited to share the news about my new role as the Executive Director of Teach For America Nashville-Chattanooga effective today, February 7, 2022. After serving in the South Carolina region as Chief of Staff, I’m excited to work alongside our growing alumni network of teachers and leaders inside and outside of the classroom.

As I begin this leadership position, I look forward to building partnerships, fostering deep connections within the Nashville and Chattanooga communities, and implementing programming that will advance our mission to provide excellent education to all students. I am committed to innovative and positive change that will drive the region forward during a time in education that is fueled by uncertainty.

As we continue on our journey toward sustaining educational equity and look toward Teach For America’s next 10 years, know that I am here to serve in partnership with each of you. I look forward to continuing this critical work together in 2022 and long into the future.
