Howard Hewitt – Another Wabash alum is continuing his career with Teach for America. Gary James ’10 taught in Washington D.C. after graduation and has most recently worked in communications.
James ’10 has been named Manager of Regional Communications. He will provide support and leadership for 12 Managing Directors of Regional Communications in excecuting media plans for Teach for America’s 48 regions.
James is just the latest Wabash grad to continue his career in the education field after completing his classroom commitment. Jeremy Robinson ’04x was on campus for a recruitment event last week. After his teaching commitment in Chicago, he earned a masters at Oxford and returned to Chicago where he teaches in a charter school, Rauner College Prep.
James’ classmate Patrick McAlister ’10 also was a TFA classroom instructor, and then worked for TFA. This week he began new duties at Teach Plus as the new Network Coordinator. “I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that helps teachers use their classroom experience to build policies that will lead to better outcomes for their kids,” McAlister said.
