TFANet is the online community for Teach For America corps members and alumni. It includes:
Classroom and Teaching Resources
Teach For America’s Resource Exchange is the leading collection of lesson plans, unit plans, data tracking tools, and classroom management strategies created by and for teachers working in low-income communities. Corps members and alumni can post, rate, comment on, and download thousands of resources from our growing collection.
Community and Collaboration
National Content Communities are an ongoing content and professional development support tool that offers collaborative and moderated spaces for corps members and Teach For America alumni to explore, inquire, and problem solve with other expert and veteran teachers across the US about student learning and teaching, for example special education, math, science, and pre-K.
Video Resources and Models
Corps members can watch video clips of excellent teachers to see successful grade- and subject-specific strategies in action. Videos range from short clips of different classroom systems, techniques, and lessons, to longer, more in-depth videos of a featured teacher’s instructional approach throughout a school day.
Corps members can learn more about implementing Teaching As Leadership strategies through videos and testimonials of teachers demonstrating how these strategies work at various proficiency levels.
Corps members can download resources for exploring different career paths and connect with alumni to investigate professional opportunities after the corps.
TeacherPop is all about corps members. This vibrant space showcases real talk from corps members and alumni sharing advice, tools and, yes, even a little humor. Find honest reflections on the darkest days and uncommon wisdom for the challenges corps members face.
