Zoe Beckham, Honors College class of 2010, returned to campus today to talk to our students about Teach for America, the national program that recruits highly talented students into the nation’s classrooms. Based in Nashville and now in her second year of the program, Zoe has thrived as a teacher and now is helping with recruiting for the organization. I asked Zoe to explain her work in the short video below.
One of the joys of working in the Honors College is seeing so many students like Zoe thrive upon graduation. Whenever possible we try to have them back to campus to talk about what they’ve been up to. It’s a great way for our students to get exposed to the breadth of possibilities awaiting them after graduation.
