This work is about ensuring our students are supported academically, and that they can pursue passions that build character, ambition, and perseverance.
Among the many things I appreciate about KIPP, I love that this organization is not only a place for young people to grow into great leaders, but also a place where staff like me can live out our passion every day at work.
We try to help them find their sense of belonging, and as they search - either on a college campus or in a career- we help to navigate the labyrinth of obstacles that may trip them up.
The people at KIPP are very, very committed to what we’ve set up to do. It’s rare to find a work environment where personal agendas don’t come into play constantly.
The best way to describe my job? "The magic that happens behind the curtain.”
The more we can help students see the potential in themselves and understand how resourceful they are, the better.
