The Ultimate City Year Dynamic Duo: An AmeriCorps Member & His City Year Alumni Partner Teacher

When you enter Room 110 of our school’s freshman academy, be prepared for the dynamic duo, AmeriCorps member Mr. Andrew and his partner teacher Ms. Reid, to bring the “j-factor” (Noun: an injection of joy) to English class. What makes this partnership unique? True, Mr. Andrew and Ms. Reid are both Tulsa transplants, choosing to relocate from Utah and Ohio to share their passion learning and serving Tulsa’s students. But, it’s the fact that Ms. Reid served in Room 110 just one year prior as a City Year AmeriCorps member that gives her the intimate understanding of the benefits in having a City Year in the classroom.

Take Two On Service: Why My School Team Leader Decided to Return for Another Year of Service.

Ryan currently serves as my School’s Team Leader at McLain Junior and Senior High; he served his first year with City Year Tulsa during the 2017-2018 school year, and will be attending the University of Oklahoma’s College of Medicine in the fall of 2019.
