    I have been working at Teach for America as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are very good at developing your leadership skills, time management, and organizational ability. Additionally you will become a better public speaker.

    Cons

    They have a one way or not at all mentality. Little room for you to become your own teacher.

    Advice to Management

    The schedule everyday is very long and there is alot of time that is spent as "alone work time". The day should be shortened and we can have our alone work time back on campus.
