Leading a classroom inspires many Teach For America alumni to continue working in education well beyond their two-year commitment.

Around two-thirds of TFA alumni work directly in education as K-12 teachers, elected school board members, school leaders, and other roles supporting the academic and personal growth of students in under-resourced schools. Whether you are continuing your career as a classroom educator, or moving in a school, systems, or other leadership role in K-12 or higher education, we curate resources to help you continue making an impact, wherever you go.
