Coeli is a recent graduate of Fordham University, where she earned her degree in Spanish Studies. Growing up, she was surrounded by several family members who were passionate about their jobs as teachers, something that has inspired her to find great value in education. Throughout the years, Coeli served as a tutor in various settings and participated in the AmeriCorps Jumpstart program, going into pre-school classrooms to help bridge the gap in kindergarten readiness. In her free time, Coeli loves getting outside and staying active. She is so excited to join Blue Engine this year because of their focus on social justice through education.
