Meet Kara Halfaker, 8th Grade Math Teacher, currently serving with Putnam Middle School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I wanted to impact kids and build their math confidence. AmeriCorps allowed me to do just that.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like for my students to enjoy math.
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 want to pursue something in personal finance for kids.
Thank you for your service, Kara!
