Ansel Sanders | Innovations in Public Education
Public education is changing dramatically in America. How can our public schools embrace changes in technology, learning styles, and culture to create a system that inspires a culture that value learning?
Ansel Sanders has taught and been the administrator at some of our most challenging public schools, and has created successful programs to overcome the challenges that are faced.
Before coming to Public Education Partners, through the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Sanders helped develop and launch an innovative school – the A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School of Engineering, the first elementary school in South Carolina with a school-wide engineering curriculum.
The overwhelming attention — people camped out to enroll — in the school only furthered Sanders’ curiosity over how to scale schools and build systems that meet the needs of a whole child and leverage community assets to do so. That question had followed him through his education career, which began as a middle school English Language Arts teacher in Baltimore under Teach For America to his time as an assistant principal in a Greenville middle school.
