Member Spotlight: Jennifer Trawick, AIST Alabama AmeriCorps Program
Meet Jennifer Trawick, currently serving with W.O. Parmer Elementary School, a service site of the AmeriCorps Instructional Support Team AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps?
I was motivated to join AmeriCorps because of my children and family. I enjoy being in children’s presence, inspiring them, learning from them, and making them smile.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity?
I want to gain knowledge from my students and my students to gain the same from myself. I will focus on aiding students in bettering themselves and helping them accomplish their goals.
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, I plan to be a substitute teacher in the beginning. However, if another opportunity comes up, I will pursue that opportunity.
Thank you for your service Jennifer!
