Great experience as long as you know what you are getting into

Teacher (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at Teach for America full-time

Pros- Positive outlook and relentless dedication by staffers and organization to further their mission
- Always people available to give support or help if requested
- Very reflective organization that values feedback and improvement at almost every level

Cons- Expectations seem daunting at first
- Not great a communication
- Training will not fully prepare you for teaching, but nothing really could

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be genuinely reflective and react to how corps members are feeling and doing - also, continue to try and connect the work of corps members so that the feeling of a movement can become more palpable

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