I strongly believe that teachers hold the power to effect change within our nation’s schools. I am honored to be part of an organization that values teachers and helps them to develop the knowledge and skills needed to positively impact their students and their colleagues.”

Kim’s Story

Kim is currently enrolled in the Education Specialist Degree Program at the University of Toledo, where she is studying chemistry. While completing doctoral coursework at the University of Pittsburgh, she taught methodology courses in the university’s Master of Arts in Teaching Program.
