Hi! I’m about to apply for Teach for America to teach somewhere they place me and I"m wondering if anyone on here has been involved with it. I"m still not sure what I will be doing after graduation in a few weeks and this is one of my options. If anyone has any experience or advice, or if there are lots of teaching jobs near you, I’d love to hear it :)

Hi Bridget,

I haven’t been through the program but I have known several people that have. They said it was a challenging experience but ultimately one that they loved. I do have experience with inclusion tutoring at low performing schools in low income areas and I will say this: with love, passion, and patience it can be more gratifying than is imaginable. I have never felt anything so rewarding as helping these kids; that’s not to say it’s easy but man is it rewarding. It can be shocking too. It really depends on your personalities thresholds and how you thrive in certain environments.
