Meet Jasmine Merlette, Third Grade Teacher, All Subjects, currently serving with Sun Valley Elementary School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I wanted to be a part of a group of service-oriented people and help do the work already being done. AmeriCorps allowed for that to happen.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I enjoy the leadership development associated with doing service.
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? After AmeriCorps, I want to continue working with children.
Thank you for your service, Jasmine!
