Bama Bound

Wow. I cannot believe the time has finally come to put this dream in motion. I have thought about this day since november¬†when I signed on with TFA and now it is finally here… Monday. Monday I’ll drive the 10 hours to Birmingham where this new chapter will begin.

I will be in Birmingham for a week. This ‘Induction’ week will consist of meeting the other Alabama 2012 corps members, learning about my region, and interviewing with principals from around the state. yikes!

Then, I will head to the Mississippi Delta for my ‘Institute’ where I will be teaching summer school while learning the in’s and out’s of being a teacher.

I don’t know what to think at this point. I am nervous! Nervous to met the 80 other people in the 2012 Alabama corps, the people I will work alongside to reform education in Alabama. I am anxious! Anxious to dive in and get my hands dirty. Mostly I am excited! Excited to begin this brand new adventure!!! Thanks for joining!
