In collaboration with The University of Minnesota, Reading Corps is offering an exciting new pathway to becoming a teacher. “In Minnesota, only 1 in 20 teachers are BIPOC compared to 1 in 3 students.” said Alison Zellmer, associate director of Innovation and Strategic Partnerships. “This, coupled with the growing teacher shortages across the state, inspired our Pilots team to develop a partnership to help narrow the gap.”
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
