Our Team

Teach For America-Massachusetts corps members will work to end the inequality of education in Massachusetts. The Boston University School of Education in collaboration with Teach For America is excited to provide BU/TFA students with the coursework they will need to earn teaching licensure and/or a Master’s Degree while teaching in Massachusetts.
