A single teacher can make a great difference in a child's life, giving him/her self-confidence, drive and ambition that will last forever. Through Teach for America, many college graduates have found that they can make this kind of inspiring difference in kids' lives even though the circumstances may be challenging. Both the student and the teacher may remember the teacher's positive impact for the rest of their lives.
As a corps member, you will be a full-time teacher and receive a full salary and comprehensive health benefits from your school district. Additional benefits, such as funding for relocation, graduate school partnerships, and help with student loans are available as well.
