Butler High biology teacher Joanna Schimizzi will take part in a nationally televised "teacher town hall" this weekend, part of the NBC Education Nation summit taking place in New York City. The town hall, moderated by Brian Williams, will air live on MSNBC from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Both are advising the U.S. Department of Education, served on CMS task forces and are working on Common Core academic standards. Both were chosen as CMS STEM all-star teachers and are returning to the summit this year.
The summit starts at 8 a.m. Sunday with a student town hall and includes a range of panels and speakers Monday and Tuesday. You can catch parts on various NBC shows or look for the live stream on EducationNation.com, the NBC News YouTube Channel and YouTube’s Education Channel.
