Although members of the Teacher Leadership Development (TLD) team spend most of their time in the classroom, the team manages to stay close. They decorate each other’s desks for birthdays and milestones, and they come together in the office on Wednesdays for regular updates. During these meetings, one member is nominated each week for outstanding work and receives an honorary crystal and a notebook of congratulatory messages.
What Aimée Does
Manager, Teacher Leadership Development
Aimée’s day typically starts with corps member observations at schools, where Aimée works directly with the TFA teachers and their students. Afterward, she debriefs with teachers, either at school or in a nearby café. These visits keep Aimée connected to the teachers and aware of classroom progress—with the extra perk of more student face time.
