Meet Emma Rose Courington, 7th Grade Math Teacher, currently serving with Wilkerson Middle School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? AmeriCorps aligned with my belief that everyone should have access to quality education.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I have the desire of getting to see the dreams that our youth hold today and work alongside them to watch their dreams come true.
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 want to see youth in my city use their creativity and desire to work on entrepreneurial endeavors to create change in our city.
Thank you for your service, Emma Rose!
