TUSD educator named Rodel Aspiring Principal

Posted April 23, 2014

An educator at Hollinger Elementary School has been named a 2014 Rodel Aspiring Principal.

Marisela Campillo, learning supports coordinator at Hollinger, is among 21 educators across the state to receive this recognition.

Rodel Aspiring Principals participate in a two-year course of training, shadowing, and mentorship with a Rodel Exemplary Principal to help prepare them to become principals at high-need schools.

"The record number of quality applicants for this year's cohort is a sign that educators are looking to build a support network as they transition into school leaders," said Howard Paley, Rodel's chief operating officer. "We provide this opportunity by pairing these outstanding aspiring principals with Rodel Exemplary Principals who have experience leading some of the top schools in our state."

In 2013, Stephen Trejo, principal at Rose K-8, was named a Rodel Exemplary Principal. Since the program's inception in 2008, 50 Exemplary Principals have mentored more than 130 Aspiring Principals. Of those, a third currently lead their own Arizona schools, according to the Rodel Foundation.
