Alumnus Enters 2010 Teach for America Corps

Recent graduate Nicholas Profeta (BA Anth and Econ 2010) was accepted into the 2010 Teach for America corps, the largest and highest-caliber corps in the organization's 20-year history.

Starting this fall, Nicholas will teach in Dade County, FL, bringing new energy and leadership to the challenge of closing the academic achievement gap for students in low-income communities. In a year where admission was more competitive than ever before, with an acceptance rate of 12 percent, Nicholas was selected from a record 46,000 individuals who applied to Teach For America and will join nearly 4,500 new corps members teaching in 39 regions across the country.
