“As a Milken Educator, it is important to use your newfound attention to positively impact the profession. Many people will contact you to ask your opinion on various issues. You can provide the clear rationale for change in the profession and be a visible example to all those around you. To walk in your shoes might be challenging, but it could be motivating for others to see. As many states are focusing on accountability, it is important not to lose sight of the real reason we work so hard: to create understanding, build excitement, and motivate those we touch.”
Kirk Brown (CA '99) Director of Science and STEM Integration / Innovation
