First-Generation Graduates Pursue Meaningful Jobs as Teachers

Financial help and other support from UWM’s Life Impact program helped Jared Anderson ’17 and Amber Anderson ’17 juggle two children, jobs, and volunteer work while attending UWM. Both are the first in their families to graduate from college, both earned degrees from the School of Education, and both landed jobs before graduation: Amber will teach at Cudahy Middle School, and Jared will teach at Bay View High School.
