Meet Mya Maye, currently serving at Greenville Elementary School, in the AmeriCorps Instructional Support Team.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? What motivated me to join AmeriCorps is I absolutely love working with kids. I love to watch the kids go from not knowing how to do something to knowing how to do it. I want the kids to say, “Ms. Mya taught me this!"
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? What I would like to get out of this service opportunity is remembrance. I want the kids to remember me as a caring, loving person, who was always there to help them with their education. I want the ultimate thought to be that the children also taught me how not to give up on them.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-2020 program year? I will be providing direct support to economically disadvantaged students in order to improve performance in literacy and/or math as measured by pre- and post-standardized tests to demonstrate improved academic performance.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? My plans after AmeriCorps are to become an Assistant Physical Therapist and when I receive that I will continue to work on getting my RN. I will work to become a Labor and Delivery Nurse.
Thank you for your service, Mya!
