• So, you want to be a teacher?

    Great — we can help with that.


    Earn your Master's Degree and your Colorado teaching license

    while changing the future for scholars across Denver.

    Hands-on Classroom Experience

    You're in the classroom on day one.


    We believe in learning by doing. The RMP Fellowship provides new educators with the immediate opportunity to develop the skill set necessary for fostering a rigorous and joyful classroom environment.


    RMP Fellows build confidence by consistently practicing effective strategies that lead our scholars to exceed their expected growth.

    Focused 1:1 Coaching

    You're supported by an expert mentor teacher.


    When you decide to join the RMP team, you'll work with the best education professionals in Denver. Our mentor teachers and Director of Fellow Development provide meaningful feedback and model best practices that can be immediately put to use in the classroom.


    We gradually release responsibility to RMP fellows in order to create prepared teachers who are ready and willing to lead their own classroom.

    Continuous Development

    You're empowered to guide your own growth.


    We hold our RMP team to the same high standards to which we hold our scholars. We've partnered with the Relay Graduate School of Education to provide fellows with the opportunity to earn both a Master's Degree and a Colorado teaching license.


    Relay's weekly development sessions will delve into the behaviors and strategies of effective educators, while Rocky Mountain Prep coaches will observe and support fellows in classrooms.


    This is your pathway to becoming a K-6 teacher in Denver or across Colorado.


    Reflect on relationships within the RMP community, and appreciate character strengths in yourself and others.


    Create a joyful, engaging and rigorous environment where scholars are meaningfully on-task and feel ownership.


    Plan your lessons carefully, define how you deliver instruction and use assessments to shape learning.


    Apply the strongest teaching techniques across grade levels and subjects while integrating literacy and differentiation.


    In the RMP Teaching Fellowship, you'll find City Year and Peace Corps alums, TEFL educators, high school sports coaches, camp counselors and passionate believers in educational equity.

    Leon Hayes

    Kindergarten Fellow

    "The RMP Fellowship has had a profound influence on my development as a teacher. I have acquired new skills as an educator and a person. I am only halfway through my Fellowship service year and I already can tell that I am being prepared to lead my own group of students to educational success."

    Sonya Meyers

    Kindergarten Fellow

    "One word I would use to describe the RMP Fellowship is dedication. Dedication to our students, to our mission and to growing great educators. The Fellowship is giving me the experience and tools I need to become a great teacher in my own classroom someday."

    Sam Becker

    Fifth Grade Fellow

    "My advisor had a plan for me from day one. Even when I wasn't sure what my development as a teacher would look like, I was comforted to know that my advisor knew exactly where I was and where I needed to go from there. I feel so lucky that I've been able to work alongside a highly successful teacher who invested her time and energy into my future as an educator."

  • Love your co-workers.


    It's not just our scholars who perform at our dance recitals. Dancing with the Stars ain't got nothin' on us.

    Love your kiddos.


    Smiling's our favorite. It's easy to create happy classrooms when our educators are happy themselves.

    Love your job.


    Staff culture has a direct impact on student achievement. We're not afraid to take risks — or laugh at ourselves in the process.
