December 1, 2015
Tiffany Martin ('05), Atlanta, GA
Director of Operations, Fulton County Schools
Why did you join TFA: Growing up in inner-city Detroit, I was incredibly blessed to have a series of teachers that cared deeply about me and my education. Because of their hard work and dedication, I was afforded opportunities that I otherwise would not have had. Joining TFA was my small attempt to have a similar impact on other inner-city children.
Favorite TFA Memory: Some of my favorite memories stem from the camaraderie that I experienced with other TFA cohort members. We debated the efficacy of educational policies, lamented conditions at our schools and generally supported each other.
How has TFA impacted you: TFA set me on a path towards a continued contribution to the education reform movement. Although I did spend some time in the private sector after TFA, my experience as a teacher instilled in me a passion for the work that ultimately brought me back to education.
