The first half of the day will be spent with Teach For America interviewers and other candidates as a group. Each candidate will teach a sample lesson while the rest of the group participates as “students.”
Next, the entire group will work together on a problem-solving activity. After a short break, the interviewers will give a brief presentation about Teach For America.
The second half of the day will include a one-on-one interview with a Teach For America interviewer.

After the interview, a Teach For America staff member may contact you for a short follow-up phone interview. Being asked to complete a follow-up interview is not an indication of your admissions status. We do this as part of ongoing training for our interviewers and to gather additional information if necessary.
