Wondering where all those Internet-crazy TFA corps member blogs are? You can find a bunch of them at Teach For Us, a Facebook page whose tagline is "Closing the TFA blogging gap." Click here for a list of blogs affiliated with the page. (There are, of course, many others.)
Here are excerpts from a couple of CPS TFA blog posts -- let me know if there are other good ones out there:
Southside: When I grow up I want to be a superdelegate.
Yes. A student actually said that to me today in class. "When I grow up, I want to be a superdelegate."
chicagomsj The Return: I was dreading
today; however, it was surprisingly calm…dare I say I even missed some
of my students....Funny story of the day:
william: ms jiang look different today, i think it’s her hair
zanay: no, her hair always like that
martize: i think she’s dressed nice
william: that’s not it
cortez claps : I know! she not pale no more!
7th period: yea!
carainchicago: Allow me to introduce myself
In the fall I will become a first year teacher in an all-girl 4th grade
classroom in Chicago in the fall. The school is co-ed but this year the
third grade was divided into a boys and girls class, which they are
going to keep together into the future. I will be inheriting the girl’s
class, which I am incredibly excited about.
