Teach for America

Teach for America provides a critical source of well-trained teachers who are helping break the cycle of educational inequity. These teachers, called corps members, commit to teach for two years in one of thirty-nine urban and rural regions across the country, going above and beyond traditional expectations to help their students achieve at high levels.

 

Teach for America seeks individuals from all backgrounds, majors, and professional experiences who have what it takes to excel as teachers and improve the quality of education for children growing up in low-income communities.

 

Teach for America looks for evidence of demonstrated past leadership and achievement, perseverance and sustained focus in the face of challenges, strong critical thinking skills, superior organizational ability, respect for individuals’ diverse experiences, superior interpersonal skills, and thorough understanding of and desire to work relentlessly in the pursuit of the Teach for America vision.
