Meet Corissa Grayson, AIST Member, currently serving with the Greenville Elementary School, a service site of the AmeriCorps Instructional Support Team AmeriCorps program.

1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps?

I dedicated myself to serving a second year because it was rewarding being a part of the change, I saw in my community last year. Seeing the looks on their faces once individuals mastered a new skill or gained a new understanding is priceless.

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

I want to gain more hands-on training, new challenges, new achievements, and success.

3. What will your service focus on for the 2021-2022 program year?

My service will focus on engaging students in one-one and group instructional assistance. Also, I will increase phonic awareness, accuracy, and fluency to translate text.

4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps?

After AmeriCorps, my goal is to become a registered nurse and become either a traveling RN or a school nurse.

Thank you for your service Corissa!
