Hey, does anyone know if there are any programs out there that are similar to Teach for America either in the US or abroad? I am currently getting my masters in elementary education and I feel that options for brand new teachers are very limited. I am just curious if there are any opportunities similar to TFA/Americorps either here in the US or abroad. For the record, I'm not really interested in the political side of education or education reform - more power to those who are, but I just want to be a teacher. Alternative certification programs probably wouldn't work since I will already have my teaching certificate. I just want to gain work and life experience and think a change of scenery for a year might be something to consider. Does anyone have any ideas?
