EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE: The Teacher of Teachers

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

Donyell Roseboro is forever a teacher.

Once in one classroom and now in many classrooms….she is our extraordinary person of the week.

“I knew there were obstacles that would be presented to me,” Donyell Roseboro said. “But I believe in people.”

That alone is extraordinary.

But there’s much more to Donyell Roseboro.

Once a high school teacher, she is now Director of the Professional Development System at UNCW’s Watson College of Education.

“It’s amazing to me to see someone enter the university as a freshman and come to Watson and thinking about being a teacher,” Roseboro said. “And at the end of the internship, to be able to say ‘you have emerged as a teacher, an independent thinker who is transforming society through what you do in the classroom.”

There simply isn’t enough time to detail all she does for soon to be, and current, teachers.

But know this…
She works with 145 public schools in 12 districts including 2 charter schools, all involving 2300 teachers and countless school personnel.


She also wrote part of the recently released book, titled School Reform Critics.

Her chapter looks at the history of desegregation and neighborhood schools.

“Growing up as a little black girl in the south, i’ve always been surprised with what the possibilities are,” Roseboro said. “I’ve always had parents who were like “you can do anything that you set your mind to.”

But she knew there were obsticles and she takes her life’s experience into schools around the state to talk with teachers and community leaders.

Because two minds are better than one.

And three are better than two….to make sure the students come out of UNCW ready for their own classroom.

“Be a teacher, despite all the craziness that may seem to be going on around education, this has been the most rewarding profession, ” said Roseboro.

Teaching….teachers….how to be extraordinary….makes her….well….extraordinary.

Roseboro also helped a team of instructors at the College of Watson secure a $50,000 grant for “Innovation in Education”.

The grant was given by the Institute of Emerging Issues and State Employees Credit Union earlier this month.

If you know someone who is extraordinary, Daniel would love to tell their story.
