A Blog Covering D.C. Education [ABCDE]

Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Dismounting the Invisible Rollercoaster

TFA is lucky to have the support of many individuals and organizations. Catherine and Wayne Reynolds, two wonderful philanthropists, happen to be major supporters of TFA here in DC. They sponsor me and my classroom.

Anyways, I was recently asked to write a reflection on my two years as a Teach For America teacher here in DCPS. I happily obliged. I thought I’d share it here as well, since it explains, in a nutshell, what I’ve learned through teaching and why I’ve decided to go to law school this fall.

In the reflection, I also explain how I liken teaching to riding an invisible rollercoaster. I’ll be dismounting it soon. Only a few more weeks of thrills and spills left.

You can find my reflection on the Academy of Achievement alumni blog.
