Welcome!

Hi there folks!

Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Tom O’Keefe and TheVolunteacher blog will chronicle my year of service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps teaching at a small, private school for low income families in Baltimore.

The blog will act as a way for me to reflect on my experiences. Subjects will include teaching experiences, writing tips, volunteering, the City of Baltimore, community, morality, spirituality, sometimes being the “bad” guy, and coping with being known as “Mr. O’Keefe” (yikes!).

I invite you to read more about me & and my placement in the “What?” & “Who?” sections.

Coming later this week, I’ll tell you more about why I chose to do a year of service.

    Yay! Your blog is up and running! It looks awesome! Though, it shows up in my Google reader at “title unknown.” I wonder why.
