A New Mexican born and raised, Seth Saavedra is a transplanted green chile addict currently living in San Francisco. He studied English, philosophy and economics at the University of New Mexico. After two years teaching middle school English in Connecticut, he continued working as a staff member for TFA, which has led to his obsession with talent and human capital, leadership development, and the intersection of education and technology. As the managing director of national talent recruitment for Teach For America, he is proud to connect great people with great jobs. In his free time he serves as league commissioner for many fantasy sports leagues, daydreams about the next city he'll call home, and blogs about his recruiting insights.
