Answers to Frequently Asked Questions Classroom and Region Preferences

How will you determine my regional and subject assignment?

Teach For America uses the following key factors in determining corps member assignment:

  • availability of teaching positions across the nation for the upcoming school year, specifically subject and grade level needs of our regional district partners
  • district hiring requirements, including undergraduate coursework credits required to teach each position and regional certification requirements
  • your regional and teaching subject preferences

In order to fulfill our mission of ensuring that all children receive an excellent education regardless of where they grow up, we work with our regions to determine the availability of teaching positions for the upcoming school year, and then we attempt to match your preferences with your teaching assignment. Our process considers the number of teachers that our regions need and regional certification requirements as they relate to undergraduate coursework.
