About Tiffany:

Tiffany majored in Sociology and Afro-American and African Studies at LSA. She also earned a Master’s degree in education from St. Joseph’s University and a Master’s degree in Urban Planning from the University of Maryland with a concentration in Economic Development and Real Estate Development.

After joining TFA in 2004 as a sixth grade special education teacher, she served on the school improvement plan committee, and worked as the Education Public Policy Fellow for U.S. Representative Chaka Fattah’s mayoral exploratory committee. After serving in the classroom, she deepened her understanding of issues affecting underrepresented communities and took her talents to the nation’s capital and served as an Educational Policy Consultant with the 21st Century School Fund and as an Affordable Housing Project Developer with The Community Builders Inc.

In 2010, she answered the call from home and joined Teach For America’s staff as the Senior Managing Director for Teacher Leadership Development in Detroit. In 2013, she transitioned as the Vice President for Regional Management where she directed regional teams to achieve ambitious goals regarding corps member placement, district partnerships, alumni impact, regional operations, teacher leadership, and external affairs.
