Too many children in America are denied access to an excellent education. Teach For America catalyzes leadership to make educational equity and excellence a reality. This year, Teach For America Miami-Dade celebrated our 16th year of partnership with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, working to expand educational opportunity for ALL children. Since 2003, nearly 1,500 TFA Miami-Dade teachers and alumni have generated measurable academic gains for more than 211,000 students. Informed and inspired by their students, many of our alumni choose to teach in high-need schools and communities beyond their two-year commitments. Others lead from sectors such as law, social entrepreneurship, school leadership and beyond to shape the context and conditions in which schools operate.
All throughout Miami-Dade, Teach For America leaders are leading the charge in the most critical leadership pathways in order to make a lifelong impact on educational equity.
