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.
2nd Grade Teacher, RMP Creekside
"The word I would use to describe my time in the fellowship would be growth! I was able to grow in my skills and confidence as a teacher. The most effective part of the fellowship was getting to work closely with an excellent teacher who gave me opportunities for growth and challenged me to be my best."
1st Grade Teacher, RMP Fletcher
"The word that I would use to describe my fellowship would be patience. You have to give yourself patience and grace because the work you're doing is not only new but also very hard. But you have to understand that if you put in the work and are dedicated to these kids, things will start to happen the way you envisioned it; it just takes time."
4th Grade Teacher, RMP Berkeley
"The most effective part of the fellowship is being in the classroom for a full year with a mentor teacher. Every day I was able to see an excellent lesson implemented. When I was teaching a lesson, I was also able to receive feedback at the moment from my mentor teacher which helped me to practice new techniques right away."
Love your co-workers.

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.
