Gary Gives Advice to an upcoming TFAer

And to TFA:  Shame on you for disrespecting this woman by not providing her adequate training.  And shame on you for having no concern for the 150 to 200 students who she is about to teach.  Teachers who only taught a few fourth graders reading and math for sixteen hours are most certainly not going to close any achievement gaps in their first year teaching middle school science.  There is a reason that 15% of corps members quit (and another significant percent who probably should quit since they are not doing much good).
