Where We Work

Why I Teach For America

Dr. LaKimbre Brown
Phoenix 1999

It gives me a sense of limitless possibility if we are all working and fighting the fight together.

Andrew Fuller
Metro Atlanta 2012

I want kids to know you can do the same thing I did and achieve things that are far better than I can.

Natalia Chabebe
New York 2012

To see that you’re someone they look up to is so heartwarming, and it just makes me feel purposeful.
