VIDEO: Delivering Education with Teach for America

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 3.44.34 PM.png

For the past seven years, FedEx has supported Teach for America and their commitment to provide students of diverse backgrounds with educational opportunities that will reward them and their communities for a lifetime.
 
I recently spent the morning in a ninth grade classroom at Arlington High School in Indianapolis as part of “Teach for America” week. That visit had special meaning for me.  My son Johnny, who recently graduated from Rhodes College, is joining the TFA corps and will begin teaching in Memphis this fall. We both share a passion for learning and the belief that every child deserves the same opportunity for achievement and advancement through education.
 
In addition to Indy, FedEx executives and team members visited TFA classrooms in Washington, DC, Dallas, Memphis and Pittsburgh. Teach for America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools.
