    Pros

    TFA provides ample opportunities to explore your leadership and teaching style. There is a huge network of people to help you determine how you fit into the larger picture of educational equality. You have to be willing to take advantage of it.

    Cons

    At first, it can feel a bit competitive and as though you are on your own when in your classroom. At times, it is difficult to know if the organization's focus is on creating strong teachers for students or creating strong leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more time to focus on lesson planning in a way that can provide better work-life balance.

    Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Teach for America.

    Interview Details

    Teach for America recruiters are extremely invested. I ended up not pursuing further interviews past preliminary rounds, but had an incredible experience. If you can get in contact with a campus recruiter, they will genuinely fight for you to get the job. It stinks that you don't know what location you will be placed in, but otherwise recruiting was a really pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions
