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

Pros

TFA colleagues are smart, fun, and dedicated. The job is highly challenging and rewarding. People respect the TFA brand. Teaching gives you excellent skills. It makes you more thoughtful and a better communicator.

Cons

Low pay, long hours, volatile school environment, little day-to-day appreciation at work. Not a long-term career. Quality of experience depends on your school placement more than TFA's efforts.

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

    Pros

    Looks great on resume. An awesome opportunity for community service and to work towards solving the national crisis that is the achievement gap. Teach for America will make you a better, more hardworking person.

    Cons

    Requires a lot of perpetual, self-motivation. Takes a lot to be consistent and to decide not to give up. You might not have enough support at your school and you will frequently question your effectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that all corps members are as supported as possible in their schools.
