Member Spotlight: Danielle Blackmon

Meet Danielle Blackmon, she serves with Birmingham Engaging in STEM AmeriCorps-BETA.

What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was motivated to join AmeriCorps, by my mother, Dr. Chandra Blackmon, who is an elementary school principal, because she knew my dream was to make a difference in the community through improving the lives of children and I really enjoyed working with children the last 8 years in the private sector.

What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I look forward to learning new strategies to teach children.

What will your service focus on for the 2017-18 program year? As I enter my second term serving with AmeriCorps, my focus will be to provide small group and one-on-one tutoring. I also want to improve my teaching skills to make a bigger impact with the students.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps? After my service with AmeriCorps, I plan to further my education in becoming an educator. I will officially make educating students my career.

*Danielle Blackmon is currently fulfilling her AmeriCorps service at Huffman Academy.

Thank you for your service Danielle!
