1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps?
I was motivated to join AmeriCorps because I wanted a more hands-on position with students. Serving in AmeriCorps will allow me to be a positive role model for students in their everyday lives.

I want to use this opportunity to get experience in the classroom and the school system.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2021-2022 program year?
My service will engage students in one-on-one and instructional assistance to help students meet or exceed individual developmental growth targets resulting in an increase (5% gain) in standardized test scores in reading and or/math.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps?
After AmeriCorps, I plan to become an Elementary teacher.
Thank you for your service Kieasha!
