From the desk of Dr. Catherine Cushinberry

Recently, I attended a parent open house at Brownsville Road Elementary. It was an event hosted by the team of our AmeriCorps members serving at the school. The purpose was to create a space where parents could learn more about City Year and meet the young people who have been mentoring and tutoring their children.

City Year Memphis Builds the Teacher Pipeline

While teaching is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, I am grateful for the training and preparation I received from City Year. City Year taught me how to build relationships and the importance of trust and understanding. I walk around my classroom giving high-fives and praising students for their hard work.
