2018 MEA Congressional ReceptionKennedy Caucus Room | Washington, DC | Mar 21, 2018
U.S. Senator Tom Udall, New Mexico Milken Educator Melanie Alfaro (NM '17), Hawaii Milken Educator Ken Kang (HI '17), and U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono discuss important issues in education at the 2018 Milken Educator Awards Forum in Washington, D.C.
As it happens, Senator Udall visited Melanie’s classroom during her very first year of teaching: “She was a star from the beginning,” he says. Udall notes that most teachers who make it through the first three years end up staying in the profession, but they need the support of master teachers to succeed and build their skills.In this photo: Melanie Alfaro (NM '17) , Ken Kang (HI '17)
