The newest education policymaker in Rahm's office is Sadie Stockdale, a 27-year-old TFA lifer who is positioned to follow the path of her former boss, Arnie Rivera. With a poli sci degree from Oklahoma State University-Stillwater, Stockdale represents a new breed of Teach for America alum: the steady Midwesterner from a solid, if unremarkable, public university.



Stockdale graduated from OSU in 2010 and spent two years teaching English in Kansas as a corps member before finding her true calling as a bureaucrat (recruitment manager, then director) for TFA in Chicago. Her LinkedIn profile lists her as an M Ed, although it's unclear which educational body bestowed this degree. She is currently in grad school at Loyola University of Chicago.



Like Rivera, Stockdale served her time on an LSC before advancing up the ranks of power. She served as secretary on the ALSC at Devry Advantage Academy for about 18 months, and has served on the associates board of One Million Degrees, as a Network Change Facilitator with Thrive Chicago, and in some capacity for Healthy Schools Campaign.



She is (recently) married to TNTP alum and fellow TFA alum John David Jefferson, who is an associate at Kirkland & Ellis in the real estate practice.



Stockdale is the daughter of Mickey and Robert Stockdale of Springfield, Mo.

Take Back Chicago



Non-Chicagoans Laura E Arnold Berle Blitstein David Bunning John Canning Jr Craig J Duchossois Paul J. Finnegan Mark T Gallogly James Gray as well as Chicagoans like Kenneth Griffin and Timothy S Mullen who chose to send their children to private school are funding the Chicago Forward PAC to elect "leaders who support these initiatives and policies that put children first. Our elected officials should demand that every family have access to a wide range of school choices, including high-quality neighborhood, charter, IB, STEM and Selective Enrollment schools. They must also reject calls from special interests for an elected school board, which would only further inject politics into our public schools and put their interests before those of our students."
