Examining the role of Teach For America in education reform from an insider’s perspective as a current Corps Member, the author seeks to demonstrate how Teach For America is a partner in the larger education reform movement, not its silver bullet. Using anecdotes from her time in the classroom, the author seeks to place a human factor on the effects the achievement gap and inequitable education has on students and demonstrate how the only way to address these effects is to learn and adapt successful strategies from all who seek to reform American education.
