Faith in Action (FIA): Deputy Director/Southeast Regional Lead
Impact Search Advisors by Nonprofit HR is proud to have partnered with Faith in Action (FIA) on this search that has successfully closed. Cassandra Jones was selected for the position.
Cassandra’s career began as a Founding Educator at South Early College High School in Houston, Texas. Through the school’s partnership with Coalition of Essential Schools, she began her time in the classroom as an instructor who viewed education through a social justice lens. Her experience as a member of the SECHS Leadership Team, English Department Chair, and Title I Coordinator, prepared her to venture out of the classroom into leadership roles. Since then, Cassandra’s roles have afforded her the opportunity to grow first-year educators, coordinate fundraising events and organize communities. In her current role, she coaches educators to become effective organizers that shift policy in favor of the needs expressed by their students and families. In addition, she facilitates learning spaces to equip leaders with the mindsets, skills and habits necessary to overturn oppressive policies in their communities.
