History alumna teaches for America
Since she graduated in the spring of 2012, Tracy Wilichowsky has been teaching at Norland Senior High in Miami, Florida through the Teach For America program. Teach For America is a post-baccalaureate program that aims to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting high-achieving recent college graduates like Tracy to teach in low-income communities. Currently teaching 10th grade journalism and the adviser of her school’s Journalism Club, Tracy is beginning to plan for a new career. “Serving at my school has definitely been my greatest post-graduation accomplishment,” she tells us. “However, my time in the classroom has revealed that teaching may not be the best career fit for me. Next year, I hope to study international development policy at a graduate level. So far, I have been accepted to Cambridge University and the University of Edinburgh and am waiting to hear back from the London School of Economics, Tufts, Columbia, Georgetown, University of Chicago, and Berkeley.” The History Department is extremely proud of the accomplishments being made by Tracy and its other alumni.
