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.
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.
4th Grade Teacher, RMP Southwest
"Not only are you learning as a teacher, but you are putting to action what you learn, getting constant feedback to implement and see growth in many ways. Being a fellow you’re exposed to so much information that can be overwhelming, but you look back and see all the knowledge you've gained in less than a year and can be proud of the many accomplishments you've achieved. "
Science Teacher, RMP Berkeley
"I would describe my fellowship experience as 'meaningful.' I have built meaningful relationships with others in the cohort, students, families, and co-workers. I truly value relationships, and find them to be a positive support in life. I also know that the work we do is meaningful. I have learned from very insightful individuals on how to better my practices and how to get the most out of it for my students."
2nd Grade Teacher, RMP Fletcher
"The opportunity to grow while practicing and improving your teaching allows one to really gain an understanding of what it means to be a teacher. The ability to have a coach beside you in the classroom, aka your lead, provides not only support when needed but also an amazing model of what effective teaching is."
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 kids.
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.
