Currently a F1 student, want to go to TPS status, without maintaining F1 status. Just want to work if work permit is permitted. But I do want to go back to F1 status when TPS expires. Is that possible?
If your nonimmigrant status has lapsed, you cannot extend or change to F-1 status.

Sorry, the answer is no.
If you violate your F status, there will no 'status' for you to return to after the TPS ends.
