Some in the Teach for America program find a passion for educating BX kids

Some members of the Teach for America program found a passion for educating children in the Bronx.

Teach for America is a two-year program that brings together people from all over the country with different backgrounds. The program allows people who did not study education in college to teach. After two years, teachers must decide if they want to stay in the school system or choose another career.

Many teachers in the program say their lives are changed forever after teaching. There are currently 20 principals in Bronx schools who were part of Teach for America.
