I WILL Teach for America

I will teach for America

Teach for America 2011 Corps Member

Last semester, I applied for Teach for America. On Tuesday, I found out that I was accepted and placed in Houston, teaching grades 4-8th. This is exactly what I wanted! I was a little worried I wouldn’t get in, but I prayed during my interview that if it was God’s will that I would get accepted. And I did! So did a few of my friends:

Diana Pena, Myself, and Gbemi Maiyegun (were in the Multicultural Information Center together)

I’m very excited that these awesome people got in too!

I missed a few people:

Micheala Gibbs, Britnie Franklin, Kopoa Keculah, and some more others. I am very proud of the Teach for America 2011 Corps. I hope that you all will join me in congratulating these seniors who are dedicating the next two years to fighting educational inequity. I’m excited to know I will be working alongside these individuals and individuals like them. From the stories I have read, I know the journey may be difficult, but I know it will be worthwhile for the result of positively impacting the lives of students through education.
