Rocketship Education is a leading United States elementary school for bringing together technology and personalized education plans. Before Rocketship Education came around, individualized lessons weren’t required for any students but those with special needs. Founder and current President Preston Smith joined hands with John Danner to place all his ideas for making an effective school in low-income neighborhoods throughout Latino-majority regions in California.
Preston Smith got his passion for teaching prior to his enrollment in a bachelor’s program at the University of North Carolina, one of the best colleges in the entirety of the United States. It was here he learned things about Latin American and Hispanic culture, things he needed to propel him throughout his career at the top network of charter public schools in the nation.
Rocketship Education, often made short into RSED, was formed as a response to areas not having good enough instruction at troubled schools.
He feels that parents should demand outstanding performance from local schools. If not, it’s always possible to join forces with community members and create a charter school. This is what Smith helped due in 2004, where he served as the Founding Principal for three years as one of the most skilled instructors in California.
Preston Smith created many learning opportunities throughout his first ten years with Rocketship Education. He shared some of them with the Internet, in thinking others might benefit from his shared thoughts.
Instructors need to visit their students in their homes prior to personalizing their education plans. Smith realized this could help parents get involved at a more intrinsic level, something that increases when they are motiviated to do so at the starting of school years.
Smith is supposed to be the President and CEO for a number of years to come, as he’s demonstrated excellence as an elementary school administrator.
