Team Possible
As a Teach For America corps member in Nashville, Tennessee, our teaching team created a remarkable community – Team Possible.  Our mission: “Together, Team Possible will encourage scholars to embody excellence. We will ensure a safe, optimistic environment that values all learners through differentiated support, embracing partnerships with families and communities.  Through high expectations, students will develop personal responsibility for their social, emotional, and intellectual learning.”
Halfway through the year we celebrated our progress with an academic showcase.  Students presented poetry, songs, speeches, art and complex knowledge of math, science, and history.
