Each year, we survey our graduates to allow insight into their transition into teaching and learn about program satisfaction.
It’s no secret that a teacher’s first year in the classroom can be pretty overwhelming. To support new teachers through these early challenges, the Rutgers Alternate Route program is piloting a mentoring program that helps new teachers tap into classroom wisdom that has been accumulated by seasoned teachers over decades.
At the July Rutgers Alternate Route Mentoring Training, mentors, facilitators, and administrators gathered to discuss lessons and advice for mentors, both for their own classrooms as well as their mentees’ classrooms.
Earlier this year, we featured three teachers in New Jersey who have built upon their experience in fraternities and sororities in the Divine Nine to continue to serve young minds. The “Divine Nine” – the nine historically African-American Greek organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (“NPHC”) – have been fostering a mission of service, philanthropy, and academic excellence with men and women of color for nearly 90 years.
This month, we wanted to honor a significant achievement from Rutgers Alternate Route alumnus Lamie Jimmeh.

Being a part of a fraternity or sorority is a formative experience for many college students seeking community and support to navigate their careers and lives. The nine historically African-American Greek organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (“NPHC”) – collectively referred to as the “Divine Nine” – have been fostering a mission of service, philanthropy, and academic excellence with men and women of color for nearly 90 years.
As Teacher Appreciation Week 2019 comes to an end, it’s important to remember that teacher appreciation is not just for one week a year! The service of teachers should be celebrated year-round. In addition, it shouldn’t just be students, families and administrators showing appreciation. Teachers themselves should play an active role in self-celebration. In fact, one of the most important ways that teachers can keep up the motivation to perform their jobs is by developing a practice to appreciate themselves.
