GradStu: Your Graudate and Professional Student Community Newsletter
The CEO of Teach For America, Elisa Villaneuva Beard, has chosen to visit Arizona State University because of its top leaders. Arizona State University recently jumped from #11 to #4 in the country for top contributors to Teach For America. Elisa Villanueva Beard graduated from DePauw University, where she majored in Sociology and was one of just a few Mexican American students. Her journey with Teach For America started 15 years ago in Phoenix, where she taught first and second grade bilingual education as a 1998 corps member. Four years later, she stepped into the role of chief operating officer, leading Teach For America’s field operations. In this role for eight years, Elisa led Teach For America’s dramatic expansion as we grew from 22 regions to 46. It is Teach For America’s regions where the organization’s program is put into practice and where 80 percent of its funding is raised.
Barrett Honors College and Teach For America thought of USG to be an excellent representative of Arizona State University for this lunch. This is a chance for you to connect with a business professional and gain knowledge on her path to become the CEO of a nationally known non-profit. We are excited to have you attend. Feel free to invite your organization as well!
Check out this article where FORTUNE magazine announced that Teach For America, the non-profit organization that enlists emerging leaders in the movement to end educational inequity, ranks on its list of “100 Best Companies to Work For.”
ASU Student Leadership Meets TFA’s CEO will be located at Barrett Refectory
from 1:30-2:30PM on Thursday, December 3rd.
We are very excited to invite you to this networking opportunity.
See you there!

Make an Impact! Change a child’s life today!
1. Urban school districts, and charter schools without retired teacher communities, tend to have more difficult times filling teacher absences. It is especially difficult filling these vacancies with quality substitute teachers.
2. School districts in need of substitutes have to resort to teachers missing their preparatory hour, and/or lunch break, and/or classes mixed with other classes.
3. Friday is by far the heaviest call-in sick day. Monday is second.
4. Frequently substitutes arrive at a classroom without a lesson plan guide prepared.
