Panel: A Strong Future
How do City Year corps members help build a strong future for Boston Public Schools students and their communities? Join us as Angel, Erika and Jules provide three unique perspectives on the power of City Year’s service.
Latoyia Edwards is the weekend Anchor for New England Cable News (NECN) in Boston. For 13 years Latoyia has had the privilege of covering breaking news and human interest stories for television and radio outlets in New England and in New York. Latoyia recently served as president of the Boston Association of Black Journalists.

||Angel Charles ‘97
Angel Charles served as a City Year Boston corps member at the James F. Condon Elementary School and has spent the nearly two decades since then as a strong and passionate advocate for children, teacher, math coach, and educational leader. Angel is currently the Principal of the Dennis C. Haley Pilot Elementary School in Roslindale where she and her team educate more than 300 students in a fully-inclusive learning environment than spans Kindergarten – fifth grade.
Erika Giampietro is the Deputy CFO of Boston Public Schools (BPS). Erika has a long-standing interest in education. She and her husband Philip co-founded ABLE (Access Better Learning and Education) in 2007, a Boston-based nonprofit providing support for at-risk high school students in Boston. Prior to joining BPS, Erika worked at Teach for America as Managing Director of Strategy for TFA’s national Teacher Support team.
||Jules Perez '12, '13
Jules Perez is a senior corps member serving on the CSX team at The English High School. A New Jersey native, Perez says her life changed when she participated in a high school buddy program that opened her eyes to inequalities in education and the need for her own classmates to access more opportunities. After attending LEAP Academy University Charter School and Brown University, where she majored in Psychology, Jules served last year as a corps member at The English High School. The highlight of her service year was when a student who was still struggling to speak and read English passed her English language arts MCAS exam.

On Thursday, November 29, 2012 more than 500 influential women (and men!) heard from breakfast chairs Carol Geremia, President of MFS Investment Management, Clare Richer, Chief Financial Officer of Putnam Investments, and Kip Hollister Hyde, Founder and CEO of Hollister Associates, as well as City Year Boston’s Executive Director Sandra Lopez Burke. Dr. Paula Rooney, President of Dean College, spoke about the difference that the right intervention can make in the educational path of a student, a sentiment that was echoed by corps member Alysha Newton, serving on the PTC team at the English High School, as she spoke about her own experiences with students. Finally, Boston Public Schools' student Hope* spoke about her favorite memories with City Year, teaching the audience how to use a City Year tool called “Fist of Five” to quickly identify feelings.
