Eileen Sandoc Yen

I'm excited to be part of the 2013 Bay Area Corps for Teach For America in San Jose, where I teach feisty elementary students.

Silicon Valley is a wonderful place to call home, but it's a region with stark contrasts in neighborhoods with and without rich resources. I believe that all kids should have access to an excellent education - regardless of their zip code - so I'm happy to leave behind a 20-year career in marketing to help my students change their trajectories and find success.
