    14 Reasons Why You Should Attend Teach For America's 25th Anniversary In D.C.!

    Teach For America's 25th Anniversary Summit will bring together thousands from the TFA community, all united behind a single goal: in our lifetime, every child will have access to a truly excellent education. We're sharing all of the reasons why you should sign up and join us for the 25th Anniversary in Washington, D.C.!

    1. Celebrate 25 years with us!

    We've been changing our country for 25 years - that's a reason to celebrate!

    2. Reconnect with old friends

    You said you would keep in touch....then you didn't. Let us help with that.

    3. Feel like a student again

    Remember when all anyone expected from you at school was a little homework? Come to the professional development sessions and let us remind you!

    4. We have the coolest speakers

    It's our silver anniversary so you can expect some pretty big names to stop by and drop some knowledge on us.

    5. #Team

    Spend a couple of days in D.C. with the people who share your goals, vision, and love for our work!

    6. Swag!

    Definition: Stuff we all get. Meaning you should leave space in your suitcase.

    7. Celebrate our students

    This is a chance for us to share with other regions the amazing things we're doing! Nothing feels better than seeing the size of our movement up close and personal.

    8. Be inspired

    Take some time to reflect on why you joined this movement and be inspired by the stories of others.

    9. Professional networking

    Learn about all the different areas of our movement. Meet the alumni, corps members, and supporters who simply believe in our work, and are contributing to the movement outside of the classroom (bring your business cards).

    10. #CoreValues

    Using your LEADERSHIP, grab your TEAM and come together with RESPECT AND HUMILITY to celebrate the DIVERSITY of our TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE. See what I did there?

    11. Foodie Heaven

    D.C. has seriously beefed up their food scene so you can bet your bottom dollar you'll get some good grub!

    12. Share the awesome things you do in your classroom

    We learn so much from the experiences of those around us. Use this opportunity to share the great things you're doing in your classroom with alumni, board members from other regions, and supporters.

    13. Monuments at Night

    This is your chance to experience D.C. with people on a mission aligned with the true spirit of our nation. See some amazing sights on a nighttime tour of the city (Hint: save room in your phone for selfies)!

    14. #TogetherWeRise

    We are ambitious, determined, and believe strongly that one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education. We willingly accept that challenge and work everyday to make it a reality for our students, their communities, and our country. #TFA25
