SMIF Seeks AmeriCorps Members

April Johnson knows first hand the joy of being part of a child’s success as she serves as an AmeriCorps member at Faribault’s Three Rivers Head Start. She spends her days helping young children learn to read. She also relishes their smiles as they enjoy a favorite story for the fourth or fifth time. The smiles – and the improvement in the all-important language and literacy skills – are the success markers for April. They are what energize her as she steps through the door every morning.

This year of service will also make a difference in April’s future. As she puts her elementary education to practical use as an early literacy tutor, she is gaining invaluable work experience. She expects this experience will stand out on her resume as she seeks her first elementary school teaching position. One thing for sure, she knows the memories will last a lifetime!
