The following comment has popped up a lot across my media feeds in the last week: In response to being at home with their children, I'm hearing parents say "Teaching is really hard, and teachers deserve to be the highest paid members of society." While public polling tends to support raising teacher pay, the current situation drives home the value of teachers (both from the standpoint of providing child care and facilitating positive learning opportunities) in a visceral way that I'm not sure we could manufacture even if we tried.

Are you a STEM Teacher Leader who has influenced education at your school, district, or state? Are you an influencer of the educational community online? One of the things we know is that STEM Teacher Leaders don't often acknowledge the impact they have beyond their own classrooms! 

Please share a story of success that you have had yourself (or that you have seen) in which a STEM Teacher Leader has made a positive change.

We would like to hear from those coming to visit the Beta site of their experience in policy? How did you get involved? What aspect of policy were you engaged in? Was it meaningful to you?
