Stories from the Rocketship classroom
Fighting for Equity
We believe that all children have potential and that great public schools unleash that potential. But the quality of public education in our country today still depends on where you live and how much money your parents earn. We are building a movement to create educational equity in disadvantaged communities across our country.
Coaching is a collaboration at Rocketship. Our team of school leaders provides instructional frameworks, professional development, and real-time coaching for teachers every single week. Just as our teachers invest their time and energy in the growth of their students, we invest our time and energy in the growth of our teachers.
We value professional development so much that we also launched our very own Teacher PD Launchpad – a free resource hub full of timely insight created by Rocketship teachers for elementary educators everywhere. Check it out!
Partnering with Parents
If we are going to eliminate the achievement gap we must develop strong partnerships between families and schools. Our teachers partner closely with our parents to understand the unique needs of every student. By doing so, our parents are more deeply invested in their own student’s learning and become lifelong advocates for educational equity and excellence.
Our elementary teachers are subject experts who specialize in either Humanities or STEM. Content specialization allows teachers to develop much deeper expertise in their subject matter and creates a collaborative grade level team that works together to develop classroom management strategies, create lesson plans, and engage parents.
This is Hard Work, But it’s Worth It
Working to eliminate the achievement gap can be exhausting, frustrating, even heartbreaking at times. Every day brings a new challenge. Rocketship teachers, parents, and school leaders work together to solve every new riddle our Rocketeers throw at us. And that’s what makes the lightbulb moments all the more gratifying. This is hard work, but it is worth it.
