Rochester Teachers Care

Rochester Teachers Care is in our 4th year of an initiative to highlight the terrific work that Rochester teachers do every day and to educate the public about the exciting learning opportunities in our public schools. The project will highlight exemplary work and dedication of our colleagues in service to our students. The RTA will release a professionally produced brief video highlighting the work of individual teachers, groups of colleagues, or entire Rochester schools. Supported by a generous grant from our state union, the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), we are working on this exciting project with former local newscaster Robin DeWind and photo-journalist Chris Coffey.

Below are the videos from this school year.  To see past videos from others years click on the links below.
