Gen Hope Staff Selected for National Teaching Opportunity Jonathan Davis, 6th Grade Team Leader "I believe it is a truly great opportunity to be selected for the 2013 Teach for America Corps as a Middle School math teach in the Greater-Philadelphia region. I believe that my academic background in Political Science and Psychology has prepared for me to make the most effective systematic changes in the education field but moreover, I look not only to eventually become one involved in effectively implementing public policy for education but foremost becoming an effective teacher for years to come. Generation Hope has provided me with an insight to the classroom and education policy and I look to concurrently receive my Masters in Education from the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) in Philadelphia and thus better prepare myself in making great effort to improve educational outcomes for all students that I serve." Mimi Woldeyohannes, Program Instructor, Johnson 6th Grade “I have been selected to become a member of the 2013 Teach for America Corps in San Antonio. I have been assigned to teach Elementary School but my exact grade placement and subject are TBA. Although this may seem like an unorthodox career path for a Political Science major to take, I am incredibly humbled by this opportunity and I am looking forward toward playing a more interactive role in making a transformational change in our educational system!” Kathryn Waggoner, Program Instructor, Baxter 8th Grade “I have been selected to become a member of the 2013 Teach for America Corps in San Antonio. I have been assigned to teach Elementary School but my exact grade placement and subject are to be determined.”
