Rodel Teacher Network
The Rodel Teacher Network is a forum for Delaware teachers to weigh in on key issues in education and leverage their voices for the benefit of their students and the education profession.
The RTN offers teachers opportunities to lend their insights on key education policy issues in collaboration with other teachers across the state.
RTN teachers will have the chance to produce deliverables (such as opinion letters, guest blogs, and more), engage in outreach and advocacy, and participate in individual leadership opportunities.
Rodel will also convene four education policy-focused discussions for teachers throughout the school year. The sessions for this year include:
– Education Policy and Advocacy: The Big Issues for 2022 (January 11, 2022)
– How the Pandemic and Federal Stimulus Dollars Are Changing Digital Learning (February 22, 2022) Register Now
– English Learners in Delaware (Date TBA)
