Charter educator gets Teacher of the Year, again
The public charter school community may believe that it gets shorted on issues such as funding and facilities. But it's a beast when it comes to the District of Columbia Teacher of the Year contest. For the third year in a row, an OSSE review panel has selected a charter school teacher for the honor. This year it's Jon Rolle, a third grade teacher at Friendship's Southeast Elementary Academy. Rolle, who teaches an all-boys class, was selected "because of his dedication to his students, his firm belief that all students can achieve, his commitment to teaching, and his ability to serve as an ambassador and role model for teachers of the District of Columbia," said the announcement from the D.C. Public Charter School Board.
