Hello educators!

My name is Mansi and I am a sophomore at East Tennessee State University. I am currently pursuing a degree in media and communications with a concentration in journalism and a minor in international affairs. The purpose of this blog is to serve as a requirement for my reporting class.

When asked what subject I would like to report on this semester, the answer was obvious. My mother is a middle school principal; my aunt and grandmother are art teachers; my great-grandmother (pictured above) and great-aunt taught as well. I was raised to have great concern for our education system, and so therefore I chose education as my “beat.”

It is my hope that through this project I may become even more aware of the hard work and dedication that it takes to teach. I have met many teachers who are passionate about their students and wish for them to succeed. My goal is to highlight some of those people, as well as the newly developed policies and plans for improvement.
