GOOD Video: Meet the Winners of The 2013 Great American Teach-Off

This post is brought to you by GOOD with support from University of Phoenix

In January, GOOD and University of Phoenix launched the Great American Teach-Off. Three weeks ago, we were proud to announce the winners: kindergarten teacher Madeleine Rogin from Prospect Sierra School in El Cerrito, California, and music teacher Everett Jeremy Rodriguez from Liberty High School in Glen Daniel, West Virginia. Now, see how Rogin, Rodriguez and their students responded to their wins when we surprised them at their schools with $10,000 classroom grants!

Madeleine Rogin hopes to inspire her students to become changemakers not only locally, but also globally.


Everett Jeremy Rodriguez is finding not only innovative ways to improve his music classroom, but also opportunities for his students that aspire them to make music a part of their careers.
