Loyola at a Glance
Three Loyola alums featured in Clarion Herald
August 22, 2008
Loyola University New Orleans College of Social Sciences graduates Andre Breaux, Katie Sporer and Jeanie Donovan were featured August 9 in the Clarion Herald, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
The trio, who graduated in May 2008, were recognized in the Back-to-School issue for their work as first-year teachers participating in the national Teach for America Program in New Orleans, which places educators in urban and rural public schools.
These three are among 3,000 program participants who were chosen from a pool of more than 36,000 applicants. Loyola’s strong commitment to social justice and holistic education is among the reasons that each decided to join Teach for America in a city where correcting the education system has been called this century’s most extensive case study for education in America.
In addition to these three alums, Loyola has six other graduates currently in the Teach for America program: Alexis Adams, B’08; Francis Giesler, HUNS’08; Joseph Goddu, HUNS’08; Adam Kohler, SS’08; Rory Payne, SS’08; and Elliot Sanchez, HUNS’08.
