I have been working at Teach for America

Pros

There is a great deal of support as a corps member form other teachers, corps members, MTLD's, staff. I have always found the help I needed. I was also able to transform lives of students while transforming myself into a leader.

Cons

The task of "repairing" our education system can be overwhelming. There is also a struggle to maintain a work life balance the first and second year because there is so much to learn.

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

    Pros

    -Excellent summer institute training
    -Continued support throughout the two years

    Cons

    -Mandatory Saturday meetings once monthly, (that don't really help you professionally)
    -If your placement school is disorganized and supportive you are stuck!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are selecting people who actually want to make a difference, and not people looking for a resume booster.

    I have been working at Teach for America full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Attitude, professional development, work from home

    Cons

    Constantly being restructured, acting as a small scale organization when they need to adopt some bigger, more streamlined ideas. Inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers! TRAIN THEM. Not everyone is meant to have a direct report.
