About The VISTA Member:
After graduating college, I completed a year of service with AmeriCorps. I served as as 8th grade math teacher and later as a college preparation coach. I am passionate about education and educational equity, and I am an aspiring public interest lawyer. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing tennis, and going on walks.
About The VISTA Position:
The Community and Parent Engagement VISTA will create a system of capacity-building opportunities to increase volunteer opportunities for families and community members to support and engage in school-based activities and events that enhance school climate. By developing regularly occurring opportunities at the school or nearby, families and community members will have structured opportunities to volunteer and build community at the school and at the neighborhood level. The goal is to increase the quality of opportunities, the number of new volunteers, and the sustainability of the opportunities.
