Meet Amanda Dominique, 9th Grade English Teacher, currently serving with Greensboro High School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was inspired by the mission of Teach for America-AL, that one day all kids will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education. I feel a duty to my country and those struggling within it. I am looking forward to the opportunity to give back.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I hope to have a positive impact on the community in which I serve, while also learning about my own strengths and weaknesses.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on maximizing student achievement by having them grow 3 points on the ACT.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? After my time with AmeriCorps, I hope to continue breaking down the education gap and helping students find their individual paths.
Thank you for your service, Amanda!
