And by "we,” I mean schools like our partner schoolscommitted to TCPI's mission of increasing diversity and inclusivity in education.
Meet Our 2013-2014 TCPI Recruitment Team!
A carefully chosen team has been put together to help recruit and select the new members of the 2013-2014 cohorts in North Carolina and Georgia as well as our newest cohorts in Florida and Pennsylvania. In the coming weeks, they will begin strategically implementing the TCPI Teacher recruitment process to identify the most exceptional teacher/administrator applicants and change agents available, interviewing prospective candidates, and helping select the final cohorts. Meet some of them here.
