Job Description:

Teach For America works in 51 communities (regions) across the country. After attending your interview, you'll have the opportunity to choose and rank 10 regions where you prefer to teach.

In joining Teach For America, you will have the privileged and unique opportunity to inspire and impact the education of young children by working as a full-time salaried Teacher in a low-income community within the US. Each year, thousands of diverse leaders across the country - from recent college graduates to working professionals in the public or private sector - use their leadership skills, experience and passion for profound social impact and social change as a Teach For America Corps Member.

Our network of corps members teach for a minimum of two-years at the preschool, elementary, middle or high school level and across one or more subjects including (but not limited to): science, math, computer science, STEM, humanities, language arts, English, reading, special education, Spanish/bilingual education, ESL, history, social students and more.

At Teach For America, we value diverse leadership experiences and skills like yours because it plays a vital role in ensuring that all kids receive a quality and excellent education and have an opportunity to achieve their full potential.

What You'll Do

Throughout your two-year commitment, you will work in partnership with parents and other educators to set ambitious goals for your students and support them on their journey, while reimagining education and your role as a leader and partner in the classroom, community and beyond.

With TFA's formal and high-quality training, unparalleled support network, ongoing coaching, mentorship and leadership development, you will be equipped to have a profound and measurable impact on the academic and personal growth of your students.

Where You Will Teach

Teach For America works in 51 communities across the country, from urban to rural, from New York to Hawaii to South Dakota to the Rio Grande Valley (and quite possibly the community you are located in today).

What We Offer:

--- Competitive salary and benefits (e.g., medical, dental, vision, flexible spending, life insurance, retirement plans etc.).
--- Intensive corps member training and classroom preparation.
--- Accelerated professional development and leadership opportunities.
--- Access to a vast network of TFA alumni leaders across multiple fields and sectors- educators, socially conscious CEOs, tech entrepreneurs, doctors, and many more.
--- Connections to top graduate schools and employers (who actively pursue TFA alumni), after successfully completing your two-year commitment.
--- An opportunity to inspire, impact and make a difference in the lives of children every day.

Minimum Requirements

--- Minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher
--- Bachelor's degree or higher
--- Must be a citizen, national, or legal resident of the United States or have DACA status

While a background in education is not a prerequisite for you to apply, you will be required to complete any necessary steps to become highly qualified in the subject(s) you will teach. You also may be required to work towards a full teaching certification during your two-year commitment.

Who We Are

We are Leaders. Educators. Mentors. Entrepreneurs. Community Members. Changemakers. Together, we see the potential in every student in this country-no matter what.

Teach For America is a national network of diverse leaders working in partnership with local communities across the country to expand educational opportunity for children.
