For support of the Director of Alumni Teacher Leadership charged with providing additional support, professional development and leadership opportunities for TFA’s 1,400 alumni teachers in New York City. The Director will initially focus on alumni in their 3rd and 4th year of teaching, and will work to determine the kinds of professional development and leadership opportunities for which there is the most need. Many studies demonstrate the increased impact that a 3rd, 4th and 5th year teacher (and beyond) can make. This is part of their effort to increase retention of their corps members through and beyond the two-year commitment, and the number of alumni teachers who stay in their current neighborhood. They will work to build a robust pipeline of committed educators in under-served communities to help create great neighborhood schools.
