Pros

TFA gives you high quality training and access to an amazing network of educators. Use it as a springboard to do great things in ed!

Cons

TFA placements are truly challenging, and sometimes the support systems don't seem strong enough. That said, they are what you make of them!

    Pros

    You get your students loans deferred and 10,000 educational credit. You can get connections if you are outgoing about it.

    Cons

    If you consider yourself diverse for any reason, Teach for America is not the place to be. Although they claim diversity as a core value, they do not practice that. Don't take my word for it apply, get in, and see how frustrated you get with the constant ignorance from other CMs up to upper level staff.

    Pros

    Great for networking, fast track to school leadership, work with diverse groups.

    Cons

    Teaching isn't for everyone, but if you love it then the only con is working in schools where there standards are not as high as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be as candid as possible about everything. Not that anyone purposely wasn't, but I think you should make a point of it.
