    I worked at Teach for America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great to give back to the community. Great to be a part of a national movement for change. TFA really helps prepare you for the classroom. The teamwork and focus on a single goal (e.g. improving schools) helps ease the learning curve in terms of becoming a teacher.

    Cons

    Long hours and lots of handwork and limited resources. Creativity is key.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. Great job.
