Tracy Espiritu gets hugs from students

Tracy Espiritu beams with pride as students rush to offer their congratulatory hugs to the inspiring teacher who has been key to helping Dr. Albert Einstein Academy students attain an over 80% Proficient (with 25% Advanced Proficient) scores in math for the last four years.

Between creating the afterschool Einstein Astronaut Program, mentoring fellow teachers (even taking them to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory) and the work she does every day to give these students the greatest chance at success, Tracy is the embodiment of this year's Milken Educator Awards theme "Teach for the Stars!"

In this series:  Tracy Espiritu (NJ '14)
