Welcome to our April Mixer! We will be joined by educator Diarese George.

Diarese serves as the primary designer and implementer for the Nashville Teacher Residency’s recruiting strategy.  Previously, he served for five years as a high school Career Technical Education teacher, with a focus on business. Additionally, he has completed education leadership fellowships for Education Pioneers, the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE), and Hope Street Group. Diarese holds a Bachelors degree in Business Administration and Masters degree in Corporation Communications from Austin Peay State University. He also received an MBA and Doctorate in Education Leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University.

In addition to his efforts to recruit more people of color as educators through his responsibilities at NTR, Diarese founded and leads the Tennessee Educators of Color Alliance, which supports educators of color by amplifying their voice and presence while focusing on three key areas: fellowship, mentorship, and leadership.
