Posted on: May 16, 2019

Sylvia Montijo ’19 can’t wait to put her liberal arts training to work. This fall, she begins a two-year appointment with Teach for America (TFA), serving as a special education teacher at a New York City middle school. Montijo also plans to earn a master’s degree at the Relay Graduate School of Education. “[TFA] values diversity, inclusion and equity, and aligns with my ideologies about education,” says the first-generation college alumna, who recently earned bachelor’s degrees in international relations and education.
