What is the Renaissance National Honor Roll?
The Renaissance National Honor Roll program is designed to help guide educators to data targets that research has shown result in greater student growth through implementation strategies. It is available to teachers, librarians, and school administrators.
There are eight monthly challenges published August through March. The challenges are like bite-sized chunks of professional development to help educators improve implementation and get more out of the programs. The ultimate goal is to demonstrate student growth throughout the year. The final step of the process entails data submission for educators to show their achievement of the targets. Those who meet the targets will be recognized through an achievement kit that includes customizable digital student certificates, a classroom pennant, and a school banner.

4th grade teacher
Freddy Gonzalez Elementary
I am 4th grade Reading teacher at Freddy Gonzalez Elementary in Edinburg, TX. I love to see students motivated to read. My greatest success with Accelerated Reade this year has been seeing my students meet their individual goals. My favorite time of the day is the novel reading and having the students reflect upon the read alouds.
1st Grade Teacher
Popps Ferry Elementary
I am a 1st grader teacher and Air Force veteran. I love explaining students' goals to them so we have something to work towards. My greatest success with Accelerated Reader has been guiding students to become independent readers.
2nd Grade Teacher
Popps Ferry Elementary
This year was my 16th year of teaching, and I felt Renaissance has been a big part of this year for me! The greatest success with Accelerated Reader this year was seeing my students make their term goals four weeks ahead of time. They got to use their daily reading time reading chapter books which was so satisfying to seem them enjoy and invest in a chapter book.
Mason Elementary School
I hold a Masters degree in reading at the elementary level and have been teaching for 26 years. Reading gives everyone a place to go and have an adventure, and I love seeing the students' enthusiasm when they successfully complete a book and see their reading level grow! I participate in Renaissance National Honor Roll because I think it is important to let the students know that there are others besides their parents and me who are enthusiastic about them reaching their goals and being successful readers.
