TFA coming to Seattle :-(

Arg, it’s so sad and frustrating that TFA looks like it is forcing its way into Seattle-area schools (I’m from Seattle and my mother has been a teacher around there for a long time – hence my particular interest). The organization is so un-needed there…(I would argue it’s un-needed almost anywhere of course, but definitely even more so in Seattle – with no shortage of experienced teachers there and in fact many real, credentialed teachers facing imminent lay-offs). However, powerful forces in Seattle (e.g. Bill Gates and the Dean of the UW School of Education – who is a TFA alum) love TFA, so here they come! Hopefully, they won’t do too much damage in the coming years to the Seattle education scene…

Hi my name is John Williamson. I'm currently working as a Classroom Coach with a non-profit called College Forward in Austin, TX. Our goal is to get high school students (primarily ones from low-income and first generation backgrounds) into and through college. Originally, I'm from Washington state (Seattle-area) and I went to school at Whitworth University in Spokane, WA. Drop me a line if you want to know anything else about me... Peace and love,
