Teach for Us
Site Name and Description: Teach for Us, The site is a support community for Teach for America teachers and alumni. It showcases the stories of the teachers and shares them with their peers and potential program participants.
Mission: “Teach For Us provides a place for the teachers to connect with each other and reflect on their experiences; each teacher’s blog tells the front-line story of how the inequalities of our education system affect real students, day after day, in a real classroom. When put together, the collective stories of success and challenge illustrate why educational inequality is such an urgent problem to solve.”
The base site is in English.
Design Overview: The website is clean and text focused. The limited photos keep the text from overwhelming the user. There is a slideshow feature at the top that circles through blog quotes pointing you to individual stories. The lack of photos is made up for by a large but coherent color scheme.
Audience: Teach for America participants and potential program participants.
Business/Site Goals: The site describes itself as a support community for Teach for America teachers, but there is also a “donate now” button for the program.
