TCPI Partner Schools – Meet The Latest TCPI Placements
Hiring season is wrapping up and TCPI schools and partner programs continue to make outstanding hires from the TCPI cohort. One such hire is Andrew Kimble, who is spending his summer teaching at Breakthrough Atlanta, hosted by The Lovett School. "It was through TCPI that I became aware of my strengths and weaknesses, and their staff constantly motivated me to become the best teacher I can be,” Andrew says. "From panel discussions with top school officials to small group projects, the knowledge I gained from TCPI's training sessions is chiefly responsible for my employment with Breakthrough Atlanta.” Meet some of our other recent placements below.
