"If you know it is something that will help students, don't stop trying"
Kayla Reinenger ('15) felt strongly about giving her students the same opportunities she had in high school - including a life-changing trip to Spain. Here we join her in the classroom as she reflects on her time in the Mississippi Delta and the steps it took to make the dream of a European field trip for her students a reality.
A week before our 2017 incoming corps members engage with the Indianola community at their Mississippi Induction, we go inside the intervention program at Carver Elementary School that helped turn assessment scores around.
We know very well that our amazing corps members do far more than teach. Here we wrap up our celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week with a shout-out to those corps members who exemplify just how far above and beyond they’ll go to make “One Day” happen for Mississippi kids.
We’re so proud of the work our corps members do every day to illuminate the brilliance of our kids. We’re even more proud when they are recognized for that work. Here we talk to three of our second-years who have been recognized as Teachers of the Year in their respective schools.
