As a former teacher and educational administrator, Community Programs Office Director Kurt Steinhaus is passionate about education.
Steinhaus manages the Community Commitment Plan, which details how the Laboratory and Los Alamos National Security, LLC, implement educational investment initiatives by Los Alamos in Northern New Mexico.
Steinhaus provides his perspective on what schools, teachers, administrators, parents and communities can do singly and collectively to improve education in New Mexico’s and the nation’s schools during a TEDxABQED talk Friday.
TEDxABQED is from 1 to 5 p.m. in the African American Performing Arts Center, 310 San Pedro N.E., in Albuquerque.
Friday’s TEDxABQED talk is sold out, however it can be watched on a livestream.
“Teachers have told us that the Math and Science Academy has changed their teaching careers and given them a renewed energy to teach math and science,” said Steinhaus. “Collectively we’re making a difference for teachers and students in Northern New Mexico.”
