About Us

For more than 20 years, Teach For America has been a pacesetter for education reform in the city of Houston.

Fortunately, Houston corps members find themselves in the company of reform-minded educational leaders. The same entrepreneurial spirit that made Houston the world's energy capital is working to increase educational opportunities for all of its students.
