It's my honor to share an important video that was published by EdLab today—our latest #TCChangemaker on Amanda Aiken, an alumna of Teachers College working in New Orleans. This is part of our series we're producing for the TC Admissions Office to help create a conversation about the College's impact, and it will likely be featured in an ad campaign in The Atlantic this fall. We're also excited to launch this on the 10th anniversary of the Hurricane Katrina disaster that devastated New Orleans. We hope this will be one more way we help the conversation about democracy and education continue.
Our work is hard. The work of many educators is harder. I hope you'll take a moment to reflect on EdLab's mission, and the complex routines that are a part of our work, and how you're able to bring your whole self to the tasks we work on together—every day, every week, every year.
