I have been working at Teach for America full-time

Pros

life changes in students, relationships with collab team as well as strong relationships with students who do not usually have relationships with teachers

Cons

they aren't really teaching students anything because they use lower end work and of course students will understand. Not really changing lives but want to make money of off students

Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Teach for America as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Teach for America has a strong name brand. Every employer recognizes it and will usually comment on it. I assume that the "white man savior" image crosses all sort of disciplines. The people I generally interacted with really care about the mission and what TFA represents. They were generally very positive and mention the various benefits being associated with the organization.

    Cons

    I question the ethnics of Teach for America and the negative affects it has on the unions within public schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your original mission.
