Teach For America is a collective force of educators and leaders who are expanding opportunity for all children. We are committed to creating an education system that lets every child reach their potential. But where do we start?
We start when a new teacher walks into a classroom. Let’s say that the teacher is you. You are anxious. This may be the hardest thing you’ve ever done.
But you know this: Education is perhaps the greatest purpose there is because everything else—opportunity, progress, freedom—begins with education.
You know that every child in that classroom is going to come to you with different needs and gifts and obstacles. And whether you teach 10 or 30 or 120 children, it’s your job to do right by all of your students, every single day, for two full years.
And as you move through those years, you’re learning from your peers and listening to parents. Celebrating milestones. Mourning tragedies. It’s Quinceaneras and Sweet 16s, chorus, after-school sports, and student council elections.
And, with hard work, your students are succeeding academically. They’re developing as learners, leaders, and advocates for themselves in pursuit of their goals.
