Two Sycamore Teachers Earn Top RESA Scores in State

Katherine McGill Sycamore Schools is proud to announce two teachers have earned top scores in the state on the 2016-2017 Ohio Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA).

E.H. Greene Intermediate special education teacher Katie McGill and Sycamore High School teacher Kari Wyse earned two of the top 100 overall scores in the state of Ohio. Both teachers will be honored before state legislators during the upcoming school year.

“We are extremely proud of Katie and Kari for this accomplishment. The RESA program sets an incredibly high bar for its passing standards and for these exemplary educators to score in the top 100 in the state speaks to their talent and commitment as well as Sycamore's top notch RESA program,” said Superintendent Frank Forsthoefel. Kari Wyse

RESA is required for all new teachers who are seeking a 5-year professional teaching license in Ohio. New teachers must complete four years of Resident Educator Training, working closely with a mentor to guide and evaluate them.

Over 19,000 educators have taken RESA since its first year in 2013-2014, putting McGill and Wyse in a very select group.

“This is an incredible accomplishment by two very talented educators,” said Brian Wallace, Director of Human Resources. “We are fortunate to have outstanding young teachers working with our students.”
