Kristen Olivia Ago
Teaching Fellow, 2016-2018


Tell us about one way in which Breakthrough shaped your path?
Spending 3 consecutive summers as a Teaching Fellow at BTGB taught me the profound trust, love and impact that can be developed between teachers and their students when a love for learning is shared, when pushing students beyond their potential to engage in important, powerful and tough conversations, and by making every single interaction with them special one — all of which shaped my path towards a career in education.

What are three words you would use to describe the Breakthrough community?
Impactful. Memorable. Passionate.

What is your favorite Breakthrough cheer?
Definitely P-O-W-E-R & Bobby Fisher in 2nd place!
