Teach for America is spotlighting the stories of two Hispanic alumni teachers, a man and a woman, as part of a Hispanic Heritage Month PR campaign to sign up more Latino teachers for its 2011 recruitment drive.  Teach for America is a program that seeks to get talented future teachers to commit to teach for two years in low-income communities, then go on as alumni to lead efforts to change the face of public education.

As part of this year’s Latino outreach program Teach for America the Latino alumni team is participating in interviews with Hispanic media and attending recruitment drives.

This school year, 8,200 corps members will impact more than 500,000 children across 39 regions in 31 states and Washington D.C. At the same time, more than 20,000 alumni continue working to end educational inequity by impacting its root causes.
