On May 21, I was very honored to serve as a panelist for the Wilson Center on the Hill’s discussion, “America’s Top Teachers Focus on Learning and Legislation”. Along with three other Einstein Fellows, I discussed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the America Competes Act. We offered our perspectives on how these pieces of legislation would affect the wide range of schools; public, private, urban, rural, and all grade levels. It was an extremely rewarding experience to be able to share my perspectives on education to an audience of my fellow Fellows, congressional staffers, and people representing various organizations that are working to help improve education.
