155: Teachers Speak, Is Anyone Listening? - with Dr. Lynn M. Gangone, President & CEO, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE)

In this amazing episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we have the honor of speaking with Dr. Lynn M. Gangone, President & CEO, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE)!  Teachers are leaving their profession at an alarming rate - which isn't good for your kids.  According to Lynn, no one wants to be a teacher but she is hopeful the pandemic will help us think differently.  There may be opportunities in remote learning, how we "think" about the school day, and why NOT following a schedule might help kids learn better.  AACTE values diversity, equity, inclusion and recognizes the great challenge of this time is the mental health of students.

Dr. Lynn M. Gangone is a seasoned education leader with association, agency, and campus-based leadership experience. As a faculty member, campus senior administrator, association executive, and lobbyist and policy analyst, Gangone brings a unique perspective to her work. She began her career in education working on Carl Perkins Vocational Equity grants, working through the New York State Education Department, and later, New Jersey, developing and delivering PK-12 professional development to teachers and guidance counselors.  Later, as vice president of the Maryland Independent College and University Association, she led the association’s academic policy and related lobbying work, with specific oversight of teacher education and education accreditation.
