Jesse’s Story
A Perfect Merger
Jesse had no idea what she wanted to do when she graduated college, but heard about TFA and soon found herself teaching pre-K. Afterward, Jesse went to work as a summer camp director. In that position, she fell in love with directorial duties, but still wanted education in her life—and so, she found her way back to TFA to take on management responsibilities here.

What Jesse Does
Operations Coordinator & National Admin/Office Management
Jesse’s job is to make things run smoothly at the National and Regional offices. On any given day, she could be doing anything from helping teachers in a new region set up their classrooms to organizing board meetings in New York to making sure everyone’s expense reports are handled. She has quite a mix of calm and frantic days in her position—and she says it’s the job’s biggest draw.
