Jose Rodriguez

Leander School District
Reed Elementary & Winkley Elementary
I am a teacher at two traditional public schools in Leander ISD in Central Texas: Reed Elementary and Winkley Elementary. I teach English-as-a-second-language to over forty-five English Learners from kindergarten through 5th grade. This upcoming 2020-2021 school year will mark my 26th year of teaching. I earned a master's of public policy from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. I held an appointment in 2009 as a Teaching Ambassador Fellow to the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C. I co-authored the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2010. I co-founded Teach Plus Texas in 2017, a non-profit designed to empower teachers leaders at every entry-level of the education system. In January 2019, I accepted a gubernatorial six-year appointment from Governor Greg Abbott to the State Board for Professional Teaching Standards. I have also received an Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps.
