The honorees were Brian Anderson, Meagan Swithers, Skylar Pippin, Meghan Moran, and Erika Edwards. Each student is a candidate for May 2019 graduation at Randolph.
The Teachers of Promise Institute was established in 2004 to identify and recognize the best prospective teachers from college and university schools of education across Virginia. The institute is funded by The Teachers of Promise Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Roanoke, Virginia, and is organized entirely by a team of practicing educators. To date, the institute has honored more than 2,800 Teachers of Promise from more than three dozen institutions of higher education.
Randolph College’s M.A.T. program is an affordable graduate, hands-on program that prepares its students to teach in one year. M.A.T. candidates learn to teach through authentic experiences in schools and on campus taught by experienced and qualified faculty.
