Relay's flagship campus is also our first and largest, serving nearly 1,000 graduate students during the 2014-15 school year. Our New York programs prepare teachers in elementary, secondary and special education classrooms, as well as more than 200 principals who are fellows in the National Principals Academy.
As Relay’s national dean, Mayme Hostetter oversees deans at all of our campuses. Before joining Relay in 2008, as founding director of teaching and learning, she taught eighth-grade English and writing at KIPP Academy in the South Bronx. Her students at KIPP were the highest-performing eighth-grade charter school class in the city. In fall 2014, six of her former eighth-grade students enrolled at Relay to earn their master’s degrees. Hostetter earned an Ed.M. and A.B. from Harvard University and is a doctoral candidate at Teachers College, Columbia University.
Our graduates demonstrate not only the knowledge and skills expected of educators, but can also achieve the positive student outcomes these knowledge and skills afford. Since our inaugural class, more than 92 percent of our graduate students have led their P-12 students to achieve at least one year of academic growth.
