Meet Candie Price, 7th Grade ELA Teacher, currently serving with Bush Hills STEAM Academy, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? Through AmeriCorps, I can help end the cycle of disparity in education in America.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like a decrease in the education gap and to see students who are academically on grade level or higher.
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? I am not sure yet.
Thank you for your service, Candie!
