2016 Rodel Exemplary Teachers

What sets the Rodel Teacher Initiative apart from typical student teaching programs is that mentor teachers are selected based on their outstanding student achievement in high‐need schools, their ability to mentor new teachers, and the recommendation of their principals and Rodel’s observation team. This ensures that student teachers are learning from the best.

In addition, Rodel provides further training and support to both mentors and student teachers to assure Rodel Graduates start their careers as outstanding educators.
