More background

TeachFor.Us, as it was originally called, was developed during the founder’s time at summer training institute and publicly launched July 23, 2006. The concept stemmed from the idea that if he had the inclination to blog about his experience, it was likely that others did, too. It was his belief that the collective voice of a community could resonate louder than blogging alone, however there was no existing site or mechanism for this to happen. Sometime in between lesson planning and copy-room runs, the site was born.

In 2008, Teach For America began publicly recognizing Teach For Us as a source of finding out “what it’s truly like to be a Teach For America corps member” by placing a link on its Our corps members page. It wasn’t long before major media outlets and even public policy think tanks started to recognize us, too.

In 2010, the site became a registered nonprofit and relaunched under the name Teach For Us.
