?!?! What happened?!?!
They only give you two weeks to decide, and a few days after I heard the news I was having some pretty serious personal issues that made me feel like I could commit to be responsible for a group of kids that would require that much attention.
I assume that was meant to say "couldn't." What's funny is a very similar thing happened to me a couple years ago. Was all set to do TFA in South Dakota, then had a change of heart last minute and called the whole thing off. Just decided teaching wasn't for me. I guess I felt like being a teacher is important enough that if your heart isn't in it, it's not for you.
Interesting. South Dakota? Yikes! Haha.
There are a lot of things I like about TFA. But there are a lot of things I don't like, too. For instance, the fact that have to get a master's in education while teaching. While it's cool that they allow you to get a free MA, if you know you don't want to teach long term it is essentially just a waste of the small amount of free time you have while in the program.
It would've been nice to get CA residency, though.
