The Basics

Teach For Us is the network of Teach For America corps members and alumni who document their work to close the education achievement gap in the U.S. Teach For Us is the largest, independent source of information about the Teach For America experience. As such, beyond providing a blogging platform, we exist to educate the broader public about the cause of education inequity.

More information about the site is documented on the About Teach For Us page and news is posted to our official blog, Teach For Us News.

Teach For Us is a nonprofit that needs your donations to operate, provide free blogs, and provide our content to the world for free. Click the “Donate Now” to contribute via credit card or bank account securely on PayPal.

How our site is structured

Right now, if you look up at your address bar in your browser, you’ll notice you’re reading a page on the teachforus.org site. Each blog on our site is identified by a name in the address before the teachforus.org. So, myblog.teachforus.org is one teacher’s blog. It’s like a mini-site within our network of blogs. Additionally, each blog belongs to a region, grade and subject category. You can browse the categories by the browse menu (located at the bottom of this page).
