    I worked at TFA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to impact the lives of so many students. Ability to work with extremely smart, talented and driven people. Great experience creating metrics and using data to support your results. Overall great experience!

    Cons

    Finding work/life balance is key. Summer Institute is extremely intense. Average amount of sleep per night is about 3 hours (it does prepare you for the classroom experience because preparing each lesson can become very time consuming). Salary is based on placement school district.
