Six-Word Stories from the TFA Network
Corps members and alumni powerfully summarize their life-changing classroom experiences.
October 3, 2018
It’s hard to condense two years of life-changing experiences into six words. But we asked corps members and alumni to share their “six-word story” about their Teach For America corps experience. We compiled some of the incredible responses we received into a short video.
The stories have continued to come in, and our inspiration and awe has only continued to grow since creating the video. Read many more TFA six-word stories below.
