This is Corey. I’m one of the co-founders of RocketPD.
Today marks the launch of an exciting new resource for K-12 school leaders and their teams.
If you don’t know my story, I’m a proud product of K-12 public schools out of Howard County, Md.
I’m also someone with Cerebral Palsy.
I always tell people that I owe my success, in large part, to my family and a handful of classroom teachers, who helped me turn my physical differences into personal strengths.
Our students need teachers and staff like the ones I had growing up more than ever. But even the truly great ones aren’t getting the help and support they need.
We can’t afford to lose more educators to fatigue and frustration.
No amount of technology, or innovation can easily replace the passion, guts and commitment that our front-line teams bring to their jobs every day.
At RocketPD, our mission is to provide our K-12 friends and colleagues with access to the personal stories, resources and inspiration they need to stay in the fight and win for students.
Each month, starting today, I’ll use my background as a veteran education writer and journalist to research and share (3) hopefully useful items with the members of this community:
- A selection of articles to read & share;
- Profiles of educators going above & beyond; and
- Resources to help you and your team do the same
The RocketPD Community is — and forever will be — free to K-12 educators and their friends.
Here’s another promise: You’ll always be able to read it in under 5 mins.
What follows is the first edition.
If you like it, all we ask is that you consider forwarding it on to your friends and colleagues.
The bigger our little community, the more we all stand to learn from each other.
Educators can register for the RocketPD Community FREE here.
Welcome to the RocketPD Community — and thank you for joining us on this journey.
