Teresa White Program Manager

Teresa White, Program Manager

Teresa earned a B.A. degree in news–editorial journalism at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. After graduation, Teresa realized that there were times when her pen and notepad were not as powerful as a camera. She headed to Northwestern University and earned a M.A. in broadcast journalism.

She has taught journalism to elementary and high school students throughout the city and previously served as the editor of DCX Magazine. Serving as an FSM News Program Coordinator for three years, Teresa enjoyed helping the youth discover their talents and shed light on underreported news stories.

Now as the organization’s Program Manager, she is dedicated to supporting and enriching all of Free Spirit Media's out-of-school time programs.

She has taught journalism to elementary and high school students throughout the city and previously served as the editor of DCX Magazine. Teresa looks forward to helping the youth discover their talents, while shedding light on underreported news stories.
