Grace Chen

As a personal product of public education, Grace Chen is an avid education researcher and writer, as well as an educator. 

One of her proudest professional moments occurred when she was teaching a group of low-income, at-risk middle school students, which included several homeless children.  At the start of the class, only one of the 20 children had aspirations to attend college.  However, by the end of the semester, every single child aspired to attend college and had clear outlined professional goals for themselves.  Five years later, most all of the students from this group are attending or in the process of applying for college!

Grace is sincerely concerned about the current education crises, where public schools have been forced to work within debilitating budgets, and she also believes that significant education reform is needed in traditional public schools to help them educate our country's children to their fullest potential.
