Teach for America accepted 15 percent of its applicants last year, said Elora Tocci, Teach for Americas communications director. In addition to another week of training, because he didnt have a teaching degree, Bussey also attended one of Teach for Americas regional summer schools, where he taught rising kindergartners for seven weeks in Camden, N.J., to obtain his provisional certification. After another two weeks of orientation, TFA teachers start the academic year as paid employees of their assigned school district. About two-thirds of TFA teachers are recent college graduates, and the other third are career changers such as Bussey, Tocci said. Its encouraging and inspiring to see people with such a diversity of experience compelled to bring their leadership to TFA, she said. First day of class Teach for America gave Bussey his first choices: the Washington region, to be near his fiancee and kindergarten because I wanted students with a blank slate, he said. I didnt want to have to correct problems from, I hate to say it, bad teachers. So I could instill the values of education and academics they need. Bussey believed TFA prepared him for that first day of school. But after all the other adults left his classroom, he was alone with those kindergartners and four-fifths of them couldnt understand him. I stood there frozen like a deer in the headlights, he said, and he thought, Im going to fail horribly. He started with, My name is Mr. Bussey, and Im going to be your teacher this year.
