Viergeline’s Story
Lone Star To Big Apple
Before joining Achievement First, Viergeline taught in Texas through Teach For America. She knew she wanted to serve a more diverse student body, so she reached out to a friend in New York to see if her school was hiring—and they were. Viergeline flew over two days later, and she accepted a position that very same day.

What Viergeline Does
Teacher
Viergeline loves being in the classroom with her students. Her favorite part of teaching is when something finally clicks for a student—it’s that moment that makes all the hard work worth it for her. When she’s not teaching, she’s writing lesson plans, meeting with her co-teacher or coach, calling scholars’ parents, or catching up with colleagues.

“If you want to work at a place where you feel like you matter and belong as a human being—aside from test scores and student data—then Achievement First is the place for you.”
