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

Pros

TFA gives teachers the opportunity to seize responsibility quickly in a high-need environment. This gives members the opportunity to develop as a professional (even if their goal is not teaching) and as an individual, while driving progress in their classroom.

Cons

Be ready to work until you're completely exhausted, with sometime little oversight, training, or feedback. Self-motivation is a key to success. Easy to lose sight of original reason for getting involved after perpetual beat-down of the day-to-day.

Advice to Management

Would be helpful to have more consolidated and higher quality materials provided by TFA, such as curriculum resources.

    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
