Completer placement across Tennessee

Teach For America joined the Nashville community in 2009 with a mission to help build the movement for educational equity in Nashville by finding, developing and supporting our nation's most promising leaders to teach for two years in Nashville's highest needs schools. Inspired by their experience in the classroom, these teachers join the diverse, national coalition of alumni who continue to work from within and outside of schools to challenge systems that limit opportunity for students. Through the development and support provided by Teach For America, over 80% of Teach For America-Nashville alumni continue to work with low-income communities; of those, over 75% continue serving in education with over 300 alumni teaching in classrooms across Nashville, 25 school principals, and approximately 100 in school leadership positions. The impact made by TFA members is felt throughout the school year and beyond. This provider has a partnership with Lipscomb University. The 253 completers reported here also received training from Lipscomb University and are reported on that institution's report card as well.
