Morgan Malatesta

Academic Coaching Associate
Waukegan High School

As an Academic Coaching Associate, Morgan works primarily with Junior and Senior Scholars at Waukegan High School. She is one member of a team that supports Scholars through these two challenging years! Prior to becoming an ACA, Morgan worked as a Scholar Coach at Waukegan for two years.

Morgan is a 2018 graduate of Macalester College, where she studied English and International Studies. Outside of work, she loves fitness -- running, swimming, strength training, and especially trying out new fitness classes. She also enjoys reading, watching YouTube videos, and talking about musical theater.

“The more we increase the active participation and partnership with young people, the better we serve them.… And the more comprehensively we work with them as service partners, the more we increase our public value to the entire community.” — Carmen Martinez
