When Honda established Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center more than 20 years ago, we set out to create a platform that would not only help students get engaged in their own education, but help teachers continuously improve their own craft as well.
Our hope is that Eagle Rock teachers and fellows apply what they’ve learned in the mountains of Colorado in their next work environment, and serve as emissaries for the kind of education Eagle Rock believes in.
The Public Allies Fellowship Program is one important way we work to achieve this goal – this program provides twelve individuals a year with the opportunity to spend a year at Eagle Rock studying active learning, community service, environmentalism, outdoor education and traditional academic subjects. The Professional Development Center plays a central role in the process, teaching fellows how to implement engaging practices that foster each students’ unique potential.
Recently, the Eagle Rock team provided an update on two former Public Allies Fellows, Anna McCanse Nelson and Mike Dunn. Take a look at what they’re up to here.
