    I worked at Teach for America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Transformative experience that can teach you a lot about yourself as well as the community in which you teach. Oh, and you get to relearn a lot of helpful information that you forgot in college. As it turns out, that is a lot of stuff.

    Cons

    A lot of oversight. It is hard to feel independent and in control when people are constantly checking up on you. That works really well for a lot of people--not so much for me. But that's a personal thing. My experience was overall very positive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.
