Meet Haley Callahan, 4th Grade All Contents Teacher, currently serving with Greensboro Elementary School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? When I first heard of Teach for America-AL AmeriCorps Program, I immediately knew it was for me. Having the opportunity to get into the classroom and shape young minds, is the most empowering experience. Every day, my amazing kids remind me why I chose this path in life, to make a difference.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? Through this opportunity I have found my passion, therefore I hope to grow and learn as a teacher throughout the next two years, so I am ready to continue this journey for the years to come.
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 1.6 years in reading.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? Ideally, after AmeriCorps, I want to stay at my amazing school here in Alabama and continuing teaching.
Thank you for your service, Haley!
