Rodel Teacher Council

The Rodel Teacher Council (RTC) is a network of local teacher leaders dedicated to finding solutions, improving their craft, and leveraging their voices for the benefit of their students. Members represent all three counties, a variety of grade levels and subject areas, and bring a broad cross-section of leadership perspectives.

Rodel convened the first Rodel Teacher Council in 2013 to represent the diversity of the local teaching force, provide a venue for teachers to weigh in on important issues affecting their work, and help set the course for education improvement in Delaware.
