Teaching For America
While at Franklin & Marshall, Lucia took full advantage of the liberal arts curriculum and she will graduate with a double major in American Studies and Studio Art. She has spent a lot of time this year thinking about life after college and before applying to Teach For America, she did her research. She contacted a Teach For America staff member and they spoke at length about the program. After that call, she knew that’s what she wanted to do. After graduation, Lucia will be heading to Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas to teach in an elementary school. She plans to work towards her Masters Degree in Education while she is fulfilling her two-year commitment to Teach For America and she hopes to one day help students like herself who come from the inner-city. As a teacher, she plans to encourage her students to pursue higher education and to make lasting change in underserved communities.
Congratulations and best of luck to you Lucia!
