Hard but worth it.

Teacher (Current Employee) Newark, NJ

ProsA very good job to find out what you are made of. TFA will test your limits emotionally, intellectually, and physically. This is a commitment that should not be taken lightly.

ConsLong hours, low pay, and being disconnected from your family. There is no way to predict how your TFA experience will be until you are actually employed by a school.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to model instructional techniques when communicating information to adults.
