Ep45-Teacher Preparation- Teach for America Feat. Eric Sarb & Andy Alcaraz

April 4, 2022

Teach for America (TFA) was founded in 1990 to address underachievement in American schools. Since this time, TFA has become a lightning rod for positive and negative commentary about how to address change in schools and how to prepare teachers to meet the needs of students. In this conversation, we chat with Eric Sarb and Andy Alcaraz, two TFA alumni. They highlight their experiences in the corps and we reflect on what these experiences could mean for the future of teacher preparation. Plugs include What Strange Paradise by Omar El Akhad, All About Love by bell hooks, Deep Work by Cal Newport, The Descendants, and the BIPOC TFA experience account on Instagram. Music by Ketsa.
