Future teachers spend summer at TU

The University of Tulsa is once again home to hundreds of Teach For America corps members, all of whom are attending the regional summer institute that’s required before they can begin teaching in Oklahoma schools this fall.

The TFA attendance in Tulsa has expanded from just 80 in 2009 to more than 500 in 2015. This year’s group will help make summer school possible for more than 5,000 Tulsa students, giving them a competitive educational advantage.

TU is doing its part to be a True Blue Neighbor in our community by giving these future classroom leaders a place to sleep, eat and interact during the institute. We are proud of our TFA-Oklahoma corps members and look forward to seeing their contributions to our state’s school system!
