Teaching for Change 2014 Highlights

"I'm overflowing with pride in those bona fide parent leaders who came out of their comfort zone, off the sideline and got in the game. Not only got into the game but won a tremendous victory. And that is in no small part due to Teaching for Change. Great work to you and your wonderful team." 
--Thomas Byrd, Education Town Hall
