VAP is one of many acronyms used by the Americorps-sponsored group Teach for America. It stands for Vision, Assessment, and Planning and makes up the foundational considerations of Teach For America's rubric for quality teaching.
Excuse me master teacher, but I have yet to receive your VAP. Please e-mail me back so we can discuss a possible due date for all your VAP materials.
TFA stands for Teach for America. Teach For America is a national corps of recent college graduates and young professionals of all academic majors, career interests, and professional backgrounds who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity.
Its mission is to enlist the nation's most promising future leaders in the movement to eliminate educational inequality.
I think I might apply to work for TFA because it has such a great mission... but I think I'll apply for an investment bank instead.
