Jonathan Feinstein – Director of Community Engagement for The Commit! Partnership

Jonathan is the son of first-generation college graduates, both the children of Jewish immigrants, and the proud product of a public school education that exposed him to diverse educators and friends in his hometown of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. After graduating from Wesleyan University, where he concentrated in Ethnic Studies and advocated for its rightful place within the institution, Jonathan returned to rural northeast North Carolina to teach middle school English and History in both traditional and charter settings. He has lived in Dallas since 2007 and has served as the Director of Community Engagement for The Commit! Partnership since its founding in early 2012.
