Andrew Rhodes is the Social Studies Teacher at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic School. Once a week, he uses Education Opens Doors Program lessons to best prepare his students for their futures. Mr. Rhodes shared, "Education Opens Doors gives students access to information and opportunities that reach further than the typical classroom."
His students use the knowledge and skills they learn through the program almost immediately as they persist through the rigorous high school application process. He encourages his students to be their best! If you ask Mr. Rhodes' students who they would turn to ask with questions about high school, college or career, they all gleefully point to him.
