About the Resiliency Guide
The Rural Schools Collaborative invited first- and second-year teachers to serve on the Young Educators’ Advisory (YEA) Council. This program is developed in conjunction with the I Am a Rural Teacher Campaign (in partnership with the National Rural Education Association) and RSC’s Regional Hub Network. Council members advise RSC and its partners on how to best support the recruitment, preparation, and retention of outstanding rural teachers. Our goal is to elevate the perspectives of young rural teachers, and ensure that our ongoing work is relevant and meaningful.
