Brenda Wright - Greater Educator




Above: Photo by John Hession She’s been the Enrichment Education Coordinator for the Henniker Community School for a decade, and has managed to make science and physics into hot topics of discussion for kids of all ages. Now she’s got the chance to make those topics lively and relevant for the U.S. government. Her selection to the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program allows her to inform policy makers on Capitol Hill about the need, and the techniques, to keep U.S. math and science education on the front burner. She’s one of four Einstein Fellows assigned to Congress, the other 10 are working in departments such as NASA and the Department of Energy.
