This semester’s first speaker in the “Career Paths” series, a joint initiative between the English Department and the Pearce Center, is Jake Lappi, who after graduating with a BA in English in 2008 served for three years as a corps member in Teach for America. Jake is currently Assistant Principal at Reid Park Academy in Charlotte as part of the New Leaders for New Schools initiative.
This Friday, 1/25, Jake will make a 20-25 presentation at 4:00 in the Pearce Center’s Studio for Student Communication (first floor, Daniel Hall), then take questions and meet with students.
Please announce Jake’s visit to your classes. If you know of any students interested in Teach for America or possible careers in education, please encourage them to attend. Interested students may also be able to join Jake and Mike LeMahieu for lunch, so if you're interested, contact Dr. LeMahieu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
