About Us

Since 2000, TFA has played an instrumental role in Chicago’s story of progress by finding and supporting diverse and equity-oriented leaders working at all levels of the education system. From the classroom to school leadership to the non-profit and public sector ecosystem that supports students and schools, we know that our network has been a force for change. Today, our network of 3,400 teachers, school leaders, and advocates impact one-third of the population of students in public schools in Chicago.
