The Role of Teachers in Community Schools

"In any school system in any state, you have families in crisis right now," National Teacher of the Year Rebecca Mieliwocki told the Washington Post . "I can do everything I can when [students] step into my classroom to try to level the playing field, but one person alone just can’t do it all. … It’s all hands on deck right now to get through this."
