I worked with students from migrant and refugee backgrounds in a variety of contexts – from Grade 6 Maths to university-level International Law. I’d leave those sessions feeling thrilled with the knowledge and experiences we shared.

BECOME A TFA PARTNER SCHOOL

We want to hear from your school

We’d love your school to partner with us and help fight educational inequity. When you hire a TFA teacher, (called an Associate) they come with subject area expertise, exceptional leadership qualities, an innovation mindset, and genuine enthusiasm, to help to make a positive impact on your students – and your school.
