Angela Engel writes from her experiences as a teacher, parent, school administrator, speaker, and policy advisor. Currently a facilitator for the Family Leadership Training Institute. Her work with state legislators has led to policies that improve learning and opportunities for Colorado’s children.
“I’ve witnessed an enormous disconnect between what parents want from their children’s education and what policy makers are mandating. I wrote Seeds of Tomorrow to bridge the divide between policy and the real lives of children.”
