Notable Moment: The two teachers spotlighted at the 2023 dinner event were surprised with letters of appreciation written by their students. Each was selected because they are first-year teachers working in the schools they once attended, and where they were taught by Teach For America teachers. The audience witnessed firsthand the full-circle moments as the former teachers, who are now their colleagues, read the touching and funny thank-you letters they collected from their students for all to enjoy.
