    Pros

    Experience working for a reputable organization in the education reform field
    Professional development opportunities
    Strong alumni network
    Real-world teaching experience
    Opportunity to truly impact the lives of the students you teach and the community in which you are placed

    Cons

    Support is provided more readily and proficiently in certain areas, but not all (i.e. special education, early childhood education, etc.)
    Many members only join for resume-building purposes and aren't fully committed to the mission
    Data-driven, which isn't entirely a con, but sometimes it seems TFA loses sight of the individuals and sees only numbers (how many people a recruiter can get to apply, how many corps members are retained for the full 2-year commitment, student achievement data, etc.)
