“When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous.”
Hello Chattanooga Pioneers!
I hope that you were able to get outside this weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather!
We are in our second week of Women’s History Month. This week’s quote comes from our former First Lady, Michelle Obama. If you are looking for resources on how to celebrate Women’s History Month then reach out to Courtney for more information.
In the Action Items section below you will see 2 new action items, both of which are surveys. The first survey is about your need for PPE (personal protective equipment) in your classroom. If you fill out the survey and express need, then we will work to get you the supplies that you need. The second survey is about the support that you need from TFA. This will help inform us of what supports we can give as we move back into schools and classrooms five days a week. Your participation in the surveys helps to inform us of shifts that need to be made, so let your voice be heard!
2 CMs,it is almost time for you to go from Corps Member to alumni. Alumni induction is right around the corner and Juan Pablo Martinez is creating a task force to help plan alumni induction. If you are interested in being a part of this task force then please fill out this survey. Alumni Induction Task Force
On Thursday March 11th, 1 CMs will have a cohort meeting. If you have any questions about the 1 CM cohort meeting reach out Molly for more details. Next Thursday, March 18th we will have our 3rd Pathways event for 2 CMs. Finally, the last week in March will be another pod coaching meeting that you will receive an email for if you are to attend. March is jam packed with events that are made to build and support our TFA Chattanooga community and to support you as you grow and hone your teacher craft and teacher leadership skills. We are excited to see you in these spaces in the coming weeks.
As always, please reach out to Molly, Courtney, or Janiel with any questions or concerns. We will see you in the classroom!
-Janiel, Molly, and Courtney
