Teach For America on Campus

This might be of interest--we've mentioned in past that several PG grads went on to Teach for America and have spoken highly of it:

Cameron Duffy, Recruitment Director with Teach For America has asked me to forward the following information to selected faculty and staff. She would be interested in speaking with you and/or your students about employment opportunities for our graduates.

Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all backgrounds and academic majors who commit two years of teaching in urban and rural public schools and who become lifelong advocates for change. For more information about the organization, please visit www.teachforamerica.org.

Last year 7 of Puget Sound students accepted positions with Teach For America. For the 2006-2007 academic year, TFA is hoping for a 25% increase in corps members from Puget Sound.

Cameron would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you in person to talk about Teach For America. She will be on-campus September 6 & 7 for visitations with faculty, staff and students. On September 18 & 19 she will have a table over in the Wheelock Student Center from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. If you are interested in talking with Cameron or having her come to one of your classes please contact her at cameron.duffy@teachforamerica.org.
