A first generation college student, Veronica López-Delgado graduated with honors from Princeton University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies. Driven by a passion for education access, she joined Teach for America upon graduation and taught middle school math for two years at a traditional public school in rural North Carolina, followed by three years at a charter school in New Haven, Connecticut. As a teacher, she served as team leader, curriculum fellow, staff trainer, and supported implementation of new discipline systems. In 2018, she moved to Atlanta to work as Programs Manager for Next Generation Men and Women, an education nonprofit providing college and career readiness preparation to Title I high school students. During her time at Next Gen, Veronica developed curriculum, managed strategic partnerships, and supported the expansion of the program to five schools and over 250 students served.
