U.S. Department of Education Washington Teaching Ambassador Fellow Greg Mullenholz will engage with local teachers to discuss strengthening and elevating the teaching profession through a series of roundtable conversations this week.

Mullenholz will meet with Council for Exceptional Children teachers at the Colorado Convention Center on Thursday, April 12, and host roundtable discussions with Thompson Valley teachers at Thompson Valley High School later that day. On Friday, April 13, he will visit with master teachers at Jefferson County Education Association Headquarters, and on Saturday, he will close the trip with a roundtable discussion with Colorado Teachers of the Year at Colorado Education Association Headquarters.

The roundtables will offer an opportunity for local teachers to share with the Education Department their ideas, experience, feedback and insight on how to elevate the teaching profession and support student learning.

Mullenholz is one of 16 teachers selected as a 2011 Teaching Ambassador Fellow after a rigorous competition among hundreds of applicants across the country. He has been working in the Office of the Secretary on teacher quality initiatives, specifically in technical assistance for Race to the Top discretionary grant winners.
