Interns and Volunteers
Teaching for Change’s mission is advanced not only by our staff and board, but also by the dedicated focus on special projects by interns, fellows, and volunteers. Our current interns are:
Maddy Kessler is a class of 2024 student at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania, where she is majoring in history and minoring in education. At Bryn Mawr, Maddy is a part of the Haverford and Bryn Mawr College Mutual Aid group that redistributes funds in the community and is a founding member of a student club, Ignite Collective. Maddy was born and raised in Washington, D.C., and is an alumni of Wilson High School. Maddy’s community engagement and interest in historical struggles for justice drive her commitment to education organizing. She is committed to working with educators to build pedagogies that students see themselves in and that foster critical historical inquiries.
She is ecstatic to be doing research that amplifies people’s history, meeting passionate educators, and supporting Teaching for Change in her internship.
