Ironically, the day after I came back from my TFA Preview Weekend, I bumped into a former teacher of mine. Ms. Van Zandt was my U.S. History teacher in high school. It felt like I had come full circle. I was finishing college and was about to become a teacher like she had been. She was a great instructor and because a teacher never stops being a teacher, she left me with some words of advice.
Last weekend or so, I went to Houston for Teach for America’s Preview Weekend. I got to meet TFA Corps members incoming, current, and outgoing. It was awesome to get to sit down with them and pick their brains about the whole teaching experience.
