Efe Foster is one of the most efficient and effective people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is a take-charge person who is able to deal with most any task that is put before her. She speaks two languages fluently, works well with other people, and is so organized that others relied on her to help with their data and paperwork. Ms. Foster is highly respected among her peers and I was lucky to have her as a teammate as she has a profound and positive impact on anyone she works with. She is a true natural leader. She will be an asset to anyone she works with in the future.
To fight social injustice and improve the quality of life for individuals in low-income, urban and high-needs communities through education, community programs, service-learning and meaningful professional and personal relationships.

Who I am and Why
I have seen tremendous success as a teacher but am looking for something outside of the classroom that will allow me to affect a larger population. My four years of teaching bilingual high-needs students in academically underperforming schools and my passion for serving high-needs communities add to my collegiate bilingual service-learning and leadership experiences.In addition to working in the classroom, I have created and manage a successful tutoring organization, performed contractual work for a non-profit in DC, work part-time with an alternative certification program for teachers and teach community ESL lessons.
In Star Trek: First Contact, Captain Picard defines 24th century mankind’s ambitions to a 21st century visitor: “The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity.” If your goals are in line with this mission, one I fully believe and live, I would appreciate the opportunity to interview with you and discuss the role I could play in your organization. If our goals are not compatible, then I wish you the best of luck in your search.
