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

Pros

It was a great supportive community that was a great place to start a career. I loved every second of being a corps member

Cons

I had a negative relationship with my Program Director, but it was because we were both stubborn about our beliefs. It was more a personality conflict then anything

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

    Pros

    I'm very glad that I completed my corps commitment now that it is over. There were so many times that I wanted to quit my first year, but I survived. My perception is that the support has gotten better since I left the corps.

    Cons

    I really was not a good teacher my first year, I feel guilty about that, but I really did put in absolutely as much effort as was physically possible. I was a good teacher my second year and I stayed in my placement school a third year trying to make up for the damage I caused during that awful first year.

    Advice to Management

    I actually really like the new changes that have been implemented over the past year, I think they are setting a promising direction for the corps experience.
