Rachel Harrah, a theatre art teacher at Thomas Jefferson High School, at first thought the Distinguished Teacher Review Process would prove daunting.
“I thought it was going to be a mountain I’d have to climb up by myself,” she said.
However, now that she has gone through the DTR process, she said that support from other DTR-eligible teachers made the process “a collaborative community instead of one person out to prove themself.”
“More importantly, it also showed that Dallas has the best teachers,” she said. “We have the teachers that are making a difference.”
The Hub spoke with Harrah last year prior to going through the DTR process. To view that video, click here.
