Jolene Sloter, Board Member, Teach for America DC Region

After receiving her MBA, Joey worked for Corning Glass Works in strategic planning. She later transitioned to the Federal Government where she gained valuable policy experience working for an independent commission charged with making recommendations to Congress about Medicare. Joey and her husband Stanley established the Stanley and Jolene Sloter Family Foundation to focus their philanthropy on education, and specifically the need for better education opportunities in under-served communities. She is applying her policy experience to analyzing this issue, and identifying concepts and organizations that improve the quality of education in low income communities in DC. Joey is a member of the TFA DC Region’s Stewardship Committee, Gala Executive Committee, and cochaired the annual gala three times. For Rocketship Public Schools, she coordinated the groundbreaking for Rocketship’s first school in DC, which opened in August 2016, and has been greatly instrumental to Rocketship in building our local board and finding new sources of funding. Joey has a Bachelor of Arts from Lycoming College and a Masters of Business Administration from University of Pittsburgh.
