This year has been the most fulfilling time in my life, and that is not an exaggeration. In terms of opportunity, knowledge and connections, this year has been phenomenal thanks to my position on the Kentucky Board of Education. I would like to say thank you to all members of the Kentucky Board of Education and the Kentucky Department of Education, who have a special place in my heart. You have provided me with guidance and support in a role that is crucial in the enhancement and evolution of education.
The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) focused on the state’s Portrait of a Learner during its meeting June 6-7.
At the beginning of my educational journey, I knew I wanted to be engaged in a process that changed education for the better. The past year has transformed my engagement with education.
