I have been working at Teach for America full-time for more than a year

Pros

Teach For America is full of people who are driven and passionate for education. The regional staff teams provide excellent service and support.

Cons

Long hours, tough schools requires Corps Members to really have a passion for what they are doing. If you don't have a passion for education, do something else. Do not apply to TFA if you are looking to build your resume and do something else after, it isn't worth it.

    I have been working at Teach for America as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with people passionate about closing the achievement gap. very open minded, and socially conscious.

    Cons

    The organization is extremely data/statistics driven. When it comes to applications deadlines, the recruitment team leaders have no problem pushing recruitment staff to the brink of exhaustion, just to produce better numbers.
