WHAT WE DO
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.
RMP Fletcher Fellow
"One word I would use to describe the fellowship? Unreal. When I got accepted to the Fellowship, all my teacher friends said it sounded too good to be true. I kept wondering when the façade would fade away, but it never did! Don’t get me wrong, finding a balance between work, life, and grad school is hard, but the support and training I receive from RMP is WELL worth it!"
RMP Southwest Fellow
"I would describe my time in the Fellowship as transformational. The rigor and training at RMP has shaped me, and many of the fellows, into diligent, and proactive educators."
RMP Creekside Lead Teacher, Former Fellow
"I can't imagine a better, more realistic preparation for teaching than the RMP fellowship. During my fellow year, I worked side-by-side an incredible, experienced teacher which gave me the opportunity to absorb helpful teaching techniques and mindsets before starting out on my own. Going into this school year (my first year of lead teaching), I knew what to expect, and I knew how to react, because I'd seen it all first-hand the year before.
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.
