My name is Jordan Thomas and this blog is dedicated to documenting my experiences as a 2014 Charlotte Corps Member with Teach For America (TFA). I recently graduated from Elon University (Go Phoenix!) and am very excited to be teaching middle school math with TFA. While I did not know that I was originally pursuing Teach For America, I look forward to teaching my children while positively impacting their lives. I know that the road will be long at times, but some things are more important than losing a few hours of sleep. My hope is that this blog gives further insight into my life, my students, my individual school, The Charlotte Mecklenburg School District, and the entire 2014 Charlotte TFA Corps. For the purpose of keeping information private, I will retain from using the real names of students, corp members, and others mentioned in my blog with the exception of pictures with corp members. Lastly, I hope that this blog gives more of an insight into educational inequity in Charlotte North Carolina.
