The RTR program in Petersburg was featured on CBS 6 recently in a story about how school systems – faced with teacher vacancies – are recruiting teachers before they get their degrees.

As an example of that, the story featured VCU School of Education and RTR student Andrea Garcia-Plata, who along with six other VCU students, is teaching at Pleasants Lane Elementary School in Petersburg while working toward her Master of Teaching degree.

The video and an accompanying news story are both available on the CBS 6 website.
