It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Talia Winokur will be leaving Breakthrough Santa Fe at the end of this school year. She will be moving back to Denver this summer and hopes to return to classroom teaching after enjoying some time with her son and new baby.  We will miss the warmth and fun-loving spirit she has brought to Breakthrough during her 9 years here in Santa Fe. Throughout Talia’s tenure as director, we have expanded to include College Bound summer and school year programming for high schoolers, developed curricula and teacher training modules, and contributed significantly to the structure and development of Breakthrough National.

Allie Cooper will remain as Director, and we will be hiring an Associate Director.

Here you can find Talia’s letter to our families.
