Elisa Villanueva Beard’s passion for educational equity comes from personal experience. Her journey with Teach For America started 15 years ago in Phoenix where she taught first and second grade bilingual education as a 1998 corps member. She joined Teach For America's staff in 2001 to lead the organization's work in her hometown in the position of executive director.  Elisa was inspired to take on this role because she saw her community beginning to have a different conversation as a result of the work her corps members and alumni were doing.  Four years later, she stepped into the role of chief operating officer, leading Teach For America’s field operations.
