Outstanding Opportunities... Not Perfect, but One of the Best in Meaningful Reform Efforts

TFA Corps Member (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN (US)

I have been working at Teach for America as a contractor for more than a year

Pros-Almost unparalleled network of educators and education professionals
-Numerous opportunities for professional development
-Advancement potential far beyond the entry-level "Corps Member" position
-Highly diverse team of coworkers and partners

Cons-Relocation is often necessary for advancement
-Stringent/required "buy-in" to TFA best practices leaves little room for personal innovation

Advice to Senior Management-Strengthen the hiring preferences and practices for TFA alums seeking employment in their home regions
-Expand your staff in each region to include a curriculum and development specialist with specific knowledge in special education

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
