Will Horne 2nd Year BKD Teacher Graduate of Bowdoin College
Bemnet Dechasa Graduate of Emory University
Bemnet's family emigrated from Ethiopia and she soon became a Breakthrough student during middle school. Later she graduated from George Washington high school, and went on to attend Emory University where she became the first in her family to graduate college. After finishing her second summer as a Teaching Fellow, Breakthrough's motto, 'students teaching students' suddenly meant much more. "When you first start teaching it's easy to think that students constantly look up to you and expect you to be an incredible teacher. But what I learned most this summer, was to look up to the students because if you find out who they are, you realize that THEY are the incredible teachers."
