- Hello -
My name is Amanda Perry and I just completed my master's degree in Community
Development at UC Davis with Patsy Eubanks Owens as my advisor. I have
helped her with several research projects over the past two years, including
presenting some of the work at EDRA 41 in Washington D.C. in June 2010. I
am currently in the process of job hunting and hopefully heading back to the
Midwest, so Patsy suggested that I e-mail this listserv in hopes of finding
some more friendly faces for that upcoming transition.
I'm hoping to find a job in community-school partnerships that are working
towards innovative solutions to meet the needs of young people. Doing so
would combine my four years of teaching experience with my recent studies of
community youth development and empowerment. Kansas City and St. Louis are
my top two destinations of choice, but I am also considering other Midwest
cities. If you are located in any of those locations, I would greatly
appreciate hearing from you to know more about the CYE networks in that part
of the country. The people involved with CYE are consistently doing the
type of work I believe needs to be happening, so I am always eager to learn
more from each of you.
Thanks for your time and assistance; I look forward to hearing from you.
