Jumpstart Alumna Reflects on Her Urban Teachers Experience

Jessica Cisneros is a K-1 Lead teacher at Two Rivers Public Charter School in DC and Jumpstart alum from George Washington University.  She has been teaching for over 5 years with a little bit of time off to raise her daughter.  Prior to joining Urban Teachers she spent five years working for the Close Up Foundation.  She has been chosen as a Teacher Leader at her school and receives regular teacher bonuses for reaching professional goals.    She also recently received a fellowship with Understood.org to support students with learning and attention issues and is on the Executive Committee of EmpowerEd — all while still in the classroom.

She spent a lot of time looking at a lot of teacher preparation programs. She thought about the ramifications for herself and her students if she didn’t start out right. She chose Urban Teachers. Urban Teachers loves applicants from Jumpstart like Jessica! Apply today at: www.urbanteachers.org.
