Nellie Mae Education Foundation
Speakers Bureau on Education Innovation
A respected group of New England’s leading experts on student-centered learning from a variety of perspectives including students, administrators, teachers, community advocates and parents.
We have come to believe that there is only one way for students to learn – come to school, sit at a desk, be taught by a teacher, and be tested. At the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, we’re committed to changing that.
Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to education, schools need student-centered strategies to help learners reach their highest potential.
As part of the Nellie Mae Speakers Bureau, we’re mobilizing educators, administrators, students, parents, and community leaders to share their stories about how they’ve put students at the center of their learning.
We encourage you to join our efforts by inviting one of these individuals to speak to your group.
Learn about each speaker and the work they are doing to put students at the center of their education.
