    I worked at Teach for America full-time

    Pros

    Great cause and education advocates helping enhance the systems but not enough and not good pay. Can't support yourself.

    Cons

    Kira Orange Jones is the most horrific human on planet earth. She struts around on her high horse, treating everyone below her like dirt. She's condescending, demeaning, and rude. I would like working there if she wasn't apart of Teach for America at all. Dealing with her and her bad attitude often ruined my days as someone who wants to make a difference in education.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Kira Orsnge Jones and replace her with a kinder more effective person.

    I have been working at Teach for America part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of support and structure in picking up new skills. Great to work with people with the same values and approach to systemic inequity - not everyone is aware and/or cares about the issues.

    Cons

    There is some hostility towards critical questions towards the program.
