We are thrilled to welcome Tamika Turner Djondo as Vice President for CWSP. Mrs. Djondo brings experience from both the corporate and education sectors.

We are thrilled to welcome Tamika Turner Djondo as Vice President for CWSP. Mrs. Djondo brings experience from both the corporate and education sectors. She comes to us from Rauner College Prep, a Noble Street high school, where she served as as their Dean of 11th, 12th and College.

Preceding that role, Mrs. Djondo worked as a brand manager and consultant for SC Johnson & Son, Boston Consulting Group, and Revlon. She received her MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business, and her BBA in Marketing from NYU.

Starting on July 9th, she will lead the joint Corporate Work Study Program of Cristo Rey and Christ the King. Her work with Presidents Antonio Ortiz and Clement Martin, as well as the CWSP teams of both schools, will strengthen the mission of the unique Cristo Rey model of education. She will serve on the Executive Leadership team of both schools. As an avid parishioner at Old St. Pat's in Chicago, Mrs. Djondo is particularly drawn to serving our students in a mission-driven environment. 

Mrs. Djondo will be in good company, as she shares a starting date with 300 incoming freshmen and transfer students kicking off their Summer Business Training experience.

Teacher to Work Day

Cristo Rey teachers lived a day in the life of their students during our Teacher to Work Day event last month.

Cristo Rey teachers lived a day in the life of their students during our Teacher to Work Day event last month. Teachers spent the day downtown at job sites to shadow students, meet supervisors and to see firsthand how skills at the workplace connect with lessons in the classroom.  Many teachers visited job sites related to their subject area. The event was a culmination of the Academics and Work Study Committee of Cristo Rey, which is dedicated to ensuring students receive a truly integrative work-study experience. 

Thank you to our 32 job partners who hosted teachers. Your impact is invaluable!
