Mimi Rodman
Executive Director

Mimi stands for children by leading strategy development and mission delivery for Stand Illinois.

Here at Stand, we work with inspiring teachers across the state. And we’ve heard from many of you this week about the inspiring teachers that have impacted your life – thank you for sharing your stories!

Even though Teacher Appreciation Week is nearly over, there are so many ways for you to stand for Illinois teachers. Sharing stories about a favorite teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week is one.

Many of you have advocated for increased school funding and a more equitable funding formula.

Same goes for working to increase the minimum salary for teachers.

Teachers in all parts of Illinois are working tirelessly every day to challenge our children, sharpen their minds, and unlock their potential so they’re prepared for life’s next lessons. Recognizing these educators is a simple yet significant way to say thanks.

Thank you for everything you do to stand up for Illinois teachers.
