#thankyouteachers / Teach For America

04/21/2021

Derek Chauvin was found guilty today on all counts, including murder. We are holding community close tonight as we feel a sense of relief from the verdict.

However, this verdict does not undo the real injustice of George Floyd’s murder. George should be alive today. The verdict does not mark the end of the work that needs to be done, but reminds us of the power of our collective voice and action. We are all on stand now.

As educators and leaders we owe it to our students to hold anti-racism as the through-line in our work. We must work together to breathe life into better possibilities for students and youth.

Yet another senseless murder of a black person showcases the amount of work there still is to do to disrupt and dismantle racism and anti-blackness that has been institutionalized in our police system.

Our black boys and girls deserve to live full and free lives and we commit ourselves to doing work that ensures their futures can be realized. We weep with Daunte’s family, the black community, and all those impacted by the most recent murder of another unarmed black man in our country and hope for justice.

Wrapping things up with our most recent Corps Year, we have the 2020 Corps! These leaders began their service in the middle of a pandemic and approached their teaching strategies with a creative boldness we admire. Here are just some of the inspiring things they’ve been doing:
- Jayde Farmer hasn’t let virtual learning get in the way of field trips! Her high school classes have been digitally visiting battle fields, museums, and other historic sites
- Angela Wood has given her middle school students the opportunity to write and share poems inspired by actual authors they’ve been studying
- Margaret Cartner’s high school students recorded themselves making an introduction in Spanish and are exchanging them with English classes in Spain, Uruguay and Chile

This corps group has raised the bar on creative teaching and we are inspired by all they do.

That’s a wrap for every corps year since the beginning! Our 2021 Corps Members will be joining the #bamaly soon and we can’t wait to have them join our mission of One Day.

To continue celebrating our 10 years of service to Alabama’s children, join us TOMORROW, 3/11 for our 10th Anniversary Celebration! Register at https://tfaalabama.swell.gives. See you there!

General information

The Problem We Are Trying to Solve: Alabama is ranked 49th out of 50 states in education and while the entire state suffers from educational inequity, the Black Belt region of Alabama has an achievement gap far wider than anywhere else. This past year at Mountain Brook High School, where zero percent of students receive free/reduced lunch, only 2.3 percent of fifth grade students tested below grade level on the mandated Alabama Science Exam. Just minutes away at Huffman High School in Birmingham, where over 65 percent of students receive free/reduced lunch, more than 77 percent of fifth graders fell below that same mastery level.

Hey Bamaly! I'm working with KIPP in DC now, and we're looking for someone to support our teaching residents through creating and implementing professional development. We're looking for someone with at least four years of teaching experience, preferably at the elementary or middle school level. We're remote through at least February, but would likely need someone in the DC/MD/VA region in the spring. If you're interested or know someone who could be, you can apply or refer a friend to us via this link. If you want to chat about the role or speak with someone on the team, I'd be happy to connect you.
