Meet Celeena Remmers, 7th/8th Science Teacher, currently serving with Booker T. Washington Elementary School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was motived to join AmeriCorps because I get to help a greater cause.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I want to learn from my students and their families things and experiences I would have never been able to. I want to help my students and their families with any access to education or resources I can.
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 AmeriCorps, I plan to enter the medical field. I want to try and tackle access to proper medical care in the same communities TFA-AL AmeriCorps program members are placed.
Thank you for your service, Celeena!
