Member Spotlight: Angela Wood, Teach for America Alabama AmeriCorps Program

Meet Angela Wood, an 8th Grade English Language Arts Teacher at Smith Middle School, a service site of the Teach for America Alabama AmeriCorps program.   

1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps?

I was motivated to join AmeriCorps to utilize my journey of struggle and healing to advocate for others. 

2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity?

I want to teach my students self-advocacy skills, as in asking for what they need.  

3. What will your service focus on for the 2021-2022 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on helping my students believe they can accomplish anything. I am aware test scores matter and I hope to benchmark on grade level. I am striving to instill goal setting and self-belief in them.   

4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps?

Currently, I want to enroll in a dual Master of Public Health/Master of Public Policy program.

Thank you for your service Angela!
