Tamara Dias

African American Teaching Fellows
Executive Director
In her role as Executive Director, she works to eliminate the large racial disparity in public education. The under-representation of racial minorities in the public-school system acts as a barrier for children who do not see people from the same background as them in the staff. She has the daily task of creating the next generation of teachers by supporting students and graduates who plan to become a part of the public-school system as teachers. Her efforts have won her nation-wide acclaim, as she was chosen by Forbes Magazine’s as one of the 30 Under 30 for Education in 2017.
