We salute exemplary educators
Renaissance National Honor Roll recognizes educators for their outstanding implementations of Accelerated Reader and Star Assessments.Honor Roll State Listing Directory
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.

5th Grade Teacher
Carmen Anaya Elementary
“I am a 5th grade teacher at Carmen Anaya Elementary and I teach all subjects. Even though we are in a pandemic, my students were able to step it up and continue reading and testing in AR at a very successful rate. I am grateful that Renaissance has myON because students were not able to go to our library nor their local library, so myON was a vital tool for my student’s success. I participate in Renaissance National Honor Roll because it is hands down the best resource for Reading success. Being recognized on the National Honor Roll is the icing on the cake.”
Norman S. Weir School
“My name is Angela Larkin and I am a middle school mathematics teacher. I have been using Renaissance for 9 years now in my classroom. I participate in National Honor Roll because it is helpful in implementing STAR Assessment and is helpful in analyzing reports to help my students become successful. I think several of my students starting the year in red and yellow and have now moved to blue and green which has been wonderful.”
2nd Grade Teacher
Granite Falls Elementary School
“I’m a second grade teacher at Granite Falls Elementary School. I’ve taught second grade for 26 years. Participating in Renaissance National Honor Roll gives teachers creative ideas to use in the classroom. I was pleased that all of my students successfully completed beginning, middle and end of year Star tests.”
Kate Smith Elementary School
“Participating in Renaissance National Honor Roll benefits me and my students because we are able to celebrate the growth we are making throughout the year. Using Star Assessements I am able to track the progress my students are making. All of my students enjoy reading from their independent book boxes, especially when someone visits the classroom and asks to listen to them read.”
Brorson Elementary School
“I teach 5 students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade at Brorson Elementary School. I have been teaching for 7 years. I love teaching at a small school with multiple grades. I love seeing the students progress over the school year! I participate in Renaissance National Honor Roll because it gives us a goal to work together to try to reach by the end of the school year!”
2nd Grade Teacher/AR Coordinator
Mary Help of Christians Catholic School
“I’m the Accelerated Reader coordinator and a second teacher at Mary Help of Christians Catholic School in beautiful Parkland Florida. I believe that reading is not just knowledge for your brain, but nourishment for your soul. I participate the Renaissance National Honor Roll because it allows me to collaborate with other reading teachers, share ideas, as well as highlight our school’s successes. This year it was a joy to witness all my second graders strive to achieve their individual goals through the Accelerated Reader program. Four of the students reached million word status and the class as a whole read over 8 million words!”
