    I have been working at Teach for America

    Pros

    Life experiences that will challenge all your conventions about what it means to be a teacher and how to educate a child in today's American society.

    Cons

    It is extremely tasking on your emotions and your social life. Your students will inspire you and motivate you to give them your all; it is impossible to be a teacher, social worker, psychologist, mother, father and moral compass to hundreds of children.
