TFA ET AL: The Fashion Models Of The Education World

Sexy-miss-carr TFAers and charter school teachers are the fashion models of the education world. 

They are both envied and despised. They're energetic, disposable, and cheap.  They are often too young and inexperienced to know what they're really doing.  They are over-praised (or harshly criticized). They live -- often in groups or as roommates -- high on the perceived importance of their job. They are the subject of endless media speculation. 

Far as I know, there aren't any real-life TFAers or charter teachers with real-life modeling careers.  But I wouldn't be surprised if it's happened.  Meantime on Gossip Girl, the beautiful teacher Rachel Carr is supposed to be...you guessed it...a TFA alum.
