Meet Hanna Kraker, 12th Grade English Teacher, currently serving with Selma High School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? The Teach for America-AL AmeriCorps Program motivated me to join.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? Resilience. Relationships. I want to see my students discover their voice and believe in the power of their words.
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? My future is wide open. I will go (or stay) anywhere. I'd like to make a career of writing but will teach until that happens.
Thank you for your service, Hanna!
