For Women’s History Month 2017, we highlighted events from history that involved women educators or provided a brief bio of a woman educator. Some of these names and stories may be new and some may be familiar. All of them, though, deserve to elevated at every opportunity. (As with all entries, please contact us if anything looks amiss!)
