Member Spotlight: Dawn Mitchell, Teach For America-AL Member
Meet Dawn Mitchell, 7th Grade Math Teacher, currently serving with RB Hudson Middle School, a service site of the Teach For America-AL AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? The opportunity to give back to my community is what motivated me to join AmeriCorps.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? Knowing that the students I served felt they were heard and felt they got a chance to be the best version of themselves is what I want to get from this opportunity.
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 possibly work in a college setting or a high school teaching business.
Thank you for your service, Dawn!
