What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to gain some experience which will help me further my career goals.
What will your service focus on for the 2018-2019 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on providing direct support to economically disadvantaged students in grades K-2. Our goal is to improve performance in literacy and math as measured by the pre- and post standardized tests which demonstrates improved academic performance.

Thank you for your service Talisa!
