Exemplary Teachers

The Rodel Foundation of Arizona has chosen to focus on the identification and replication of exemplary teachers within the state’s neediest schools. The teachers who are selected to receive honors and cash awards are selected not only for their skills in their own classrooms, but also on their potential as teachers of the next generation of exemplary teachers. During their tenure as Rodel Exemplary Teachers, these professionals are paired with six student teachers. These “Promising Teachers” are not only having success in raising the level of performance of their students, but the overwhelming majority are continuing to teach in “high-need schools.”
