Join the remarkable people working to improve education across America.
Weekly Tie-Up: Independence Day!
We’re wrapping up a short (exciting!) week for a much-anticipated long (exciting!!) weekend. This week, we’re throwing up some love to the GLSEN Educator of the Year, Desiree Raught (D.C. Region ’07), who wrote a powerful piece about her eight years in the classroom. Speaking of award-winners, the new 2015 Miss Nevada, Katherine Kelley, is about to enter her second year as a high school teacher in Las Vegas Valley. How fancy is that? So fancy.
While we’re celebrating the hard work of Desiree and Katherine, I want to make sure that a more pressing issue is on your radar: Read about the serious threat to AmeriCorps funding, how that might impact national service on a broader scale, and what you can do to help.
I hope your weekend is filled with fun, relaxation, and food—lots and lots of food.
