The Louisiana Delta Region is tucked away in the northeast corner of the state and is home to scenic landscapes and waterways. It is also home to dedicated Teach For America Corps Members like Trenisha Goslee.
Hear why Trenisha says she's right where she's always wanted to be as a seventh grade math teacher at Ferriday Junior High School.
Be Bold: Share our Poet Warriors' voices far and wide!
Emily Southerton (Mississippi Delta 2010 Teach For America alumni) created the Poet Warriors Project, an initiative to get an initiative to get middle school students around the country reading and writing poetry. Our Poet Warriors speak the truth about their communities. They use their own words, cadences, images, ideas to tell the truth about their lives.
Teach For America is growing the force of leaders committed to ensuring that all kids have an education that expands their opportunities and gives them more choices in life. Leadership through TFA begins in the classroom, where corps members spend at least two years in low-income communities teaching students and helping them reach their full potential. Through teaching, they develop the skills, mindsets, and relationships necessary to become lifelong advocates for students and join a nation-wide network of change-makers.
