Member Spotlight: Dorian Cato, Teach for America Alabama AmeriCorps Program

Meet Dorian Cato, a Social Studies Teacher serving with Francis Marion, a service site of the Teach for America Alabama AmeriCorps program.

1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps?

I was a school teacher for a few years before COVID and lost the fire and drive to teach. After a two-year break away from the classroom, I believed that the Teach for America Alabama AmeriCorps program helped me fall in love with education again.

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

I want my joy for the classroom to return and instill a joy for learning back into my students.

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

During this program year, my service will focus on building genuine, nontoxic connections to others after a year and a half of isolation.

4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps?

I am exploring opportunities to advocate and implement educational policies that ensure the advancement of my students especially the students of color.

Thank you for your service Dorian!
