Roger Leon, now principal of University High School in Newark, New Jersey, told Education World, "My first year was great. But, he added, "The first day was the worst! I had my plans ready. The day was set. I knew what I was going to ask and why. I didn't take into account that students could actually help change those plans. Leon did his alternative certification work at Montclair State University in New Jersey, which collaborated with several school districts in the state, including Newark's. He began his one-year commitment to teach in Newark in 1992 -- and never left.
Roger Leon believes that those programs should require a longer commitment because so many newly certified teachers serve inner-city students for only one year, then leave to teach in the suburbs. Leon's school, "a Blue Ribbon School with many up-and-coming programs, needs people to stay in Newark and help spread the word," Leon said.
