My name is Erika Berry and I am a 2011 Teach for America Policy and Advocacy Leadership Initiative (PALI) Fellow, and I have the wonderful privilege this summer of working with Mississippi First for my PALI fellowship.  The bulk of my work this summer is creating the school-visit protocol for the school visit portion of the Success for All Students high-performing, high-poverty schools report.  The Success for All Students report will demonstrate that ALL KIDS CAN LEARN, and visits to these high-performing, high-poverty schools in Mississippi will provide comprehensive evidence of the positive impact that successful schools can have on changing the life trajectory of their students.  I am pursing a Master in Public Policy (Education Policy) degree at Vanderbilt University, with an anticipated graduation date of May 2012.  Before graduate school I taught sixth- and seventh-grade math for two years in Charlotte, NC, as a 2008 Teach for America corps member, and graduated from Ole Miss in 2008 with a B.A. in Political Science.
