This month, we are excited to highlight ‘22 TFA Alabama corps member, Angelica Izuogu!🎉

Angelica joined TFA Alabama after graduating from Spelman College and earning her Master of Health Science degree from Meharry Medical College in 2022. 👏

As a young teacher, Angelica recognizes that it’s been difficult at times finding her footing and place in systems that are rooted in generational rules and procedures. Nonetheless, she cherishes the memories she has made with her students over the last year and a half.

So, who influenced Angelica to join TFA? Her mother. 💜Her mother, Kimberley Izuogu, is a TFA alumna (Eastern North Carolina ‘19)!
