New Teachers Search for Place in New Orleans
Zubrzycki, Jaclyn
Education Week, v32 n29 p1, 14 Apr 2013
Derek Roguski and Hannah Sadtler came to New Orleans in 2008 through Teach For America. The competitive program provided five weeks' training and helped place them in schools, and both young teachers were eager to learn to teach and help the city's students. But they quickly found that they had more questions than answers about the schools they were in and the challenges they encountered. So when their two-year teaching commitments ended, the pair founded the New Teachers' Roundtable, a support group that hosts discussions and story circles in which new teachers start to understand their experiences and roles in this city's history and schools.
