Meet Emily Marcus, an AmeriCorps member with City of Lakes AmeriCorps and the author of the June 2007 America Learns Strategy of the Month!
Emily joined AmeriCorps after college to explore her interests of education and the nonprofit sector. She has spent this past year serving as a tutor/mentor and an afterschool leader at Jefferson Elementary.
She shared that, "I love working with the kids and listening to their stories. They all have something to say. I'm honored to be able to have a little part in their lives." Emily is also thankful for AmeriCorps' existence. "[It] has provided me with a world of invaluable experience and connections," she told us recently.
And check out what Emily's supervisor, Jennifer Valley, had to say about her: "Although she is known for her great smile and positive attitude, even Emily has had her share of challenging students. This strategy is just one great example of how she has risen to the challenge and engaged her students in learning while keeping her cool. We're very proud of Emily and all she has accomplished this year!"
