Further, the EOS partnership represents a true leverage point to help schools and districts realize results and change practices and mindsets. ”

To be able to affect change in the large system we call “public education” is profound and makes me proud to be a part of EOS. Working with like-minded colleagues is an incredible feeling, and meeting administrators, teachers and staff from around the country who serve our youth, has been awe-inspiring. EOS combines my passion for equitable access in education, and working alongside teammates who share the same vision, drive and work ethic.”
