Member Spotlight: Shannon Powell, Instructional Aide

Meet Shannon Powell, she serves with the AmeriCorps Instructional Support Team with the Bright Beginnings Pre-K program.

What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I wanted to be more involved in the community and help children having a challenging time in different subject areas. I also wanted to go into Early Child development. Working with children in AmeriCorps will give me all the experience I need.

What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to help kids that are having academic trouble in school and help those children that are very shy.

What will your service focus on for the 2017-18 program year? I will serve in the Bright Beginnings Pre-K program to provide direct support to economically disadvantaged children to develop school readiness skills as it relates to social and/or emotional development, literacy skills in one or more domains: phonological awareness book knowledge and appreciation, print awareness and concepts, early writing, and alphabet knowledge.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps? To gain a better understanding of working with diverse groups of children to assist me in making a decision as to whether or not to go into Child Development.

Thank you for your service Shannon!
