It is an honor to introduce ourselves to you as the 2010-11 Washington Teaching Ambassador Fellows.
We are all excited to be here at the U.S. Department of Education, working to help create the conditions and structures necessary for success in our schools. With five Teaching Ambassador Fellows in Washington and ten in schools across the country, our mission is to do all we can to represent teacher and student voices in the dialogue on how to improve opportunities for our students to succeed in our classrooms and in their lives.
As we step through this path of change in education, we ask for your voices, expertise and engagement. Over the course of the year, we want to know what you need, how we can best serve you and how policy can be guided to both support the work you are doing and change the way we do education.
To kick off this discussion, we ask you:
What is the biggest challenge facing education today?
With great hope for the future of education,
Antero, Edit, Jamal, Jeff, Katie, Laurie, Leah, Linda, Lisa, Nick, Pam, Patrick, Tracey, Stephanie and Steve
