Never forgetting the message of giving in his community, Mr. Bailey has chosen to make education his career. After teaching 9th Grade Special Education in Washington D.C. with TFA, Karega became the youngest Dean in the history of Maya Angelou Public Charter School at age 25.

Teach For America: The Basics Play

Teach For America is growing the force of leaders committed to ensuring that all kids have an education that expands their opportunities and gives them more choices in life. Leadership through TFA begins in the classroom, where corps members spend at least two years in low-income communities teaching students and helping them reach their full potential. Through teaching, they develop the skills, mindsets, and relationships necessary to become lifelong advocates for students and join a nation-wide network of change-makers.

Dream.Rise.Do. Play

Fifty years ago Martin Luther King, Jr. charged Americans to take radical and urgent action towards a very basic dream--equality. Equality attained not just by changing hearts and minds, but by transforming the societal structures at the root of injustice into the very genesis of equity.

It's a dream unrealized for past generations, but for our children, it's not far from reach. With the power to see it through are:

- Teachers, who will help our children DREAM beyond all perceived limits
- Teachers, who will help our children RISE to every challenge
- Teachers, who will DO whatever it takes to prove to our children that a dream can be more
