Changing the lives of second graders

Erin Peacock (’07) joined the Teach for America corps and went to work in a second-grade classroom in South Bronx, New York. The results have been amazing. Take for instance the percent of her students that read on grade level — 25 percent when she started teaching, 90 percent now! Erin knows that a good education makes a difference, and she’s changing the lives of young children in her classroom. They’re getting a good start on the road to opportunity. Way to go, Erin!
