I have been working at Teach for America full-time for more than a year

Pros

A very good job to find out what you are made of. TFA will test your limits emotionally, intellectually, and physically. This is a commitment that should not be taken lightly.

Cons

Long hours, low pay, and being disconnected from your family. There is no way to predict how your TFA experience will be until you are actually employed by a school.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to model instructional techniques when communicating information to adults.

    I have been working at Teach for America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - You get to work with incredibly motivated and intelligent people with strong leadership qualities.
    -If you are a recent college graduate, most people are in the same age group and at the same point in their lives.
    -Extensive support and room for growth `

    Cons

    - Long hours, for me, due to learning how to teach during my first year teaching.
    -Possibility to be placed in a part of the country you are not comfortable in or fit in easily with.
