Message from the Executive Director


Gaye Krause headshot

The Krause Center for Innovation experienced an exceptionally successful summer since beginning our professional development work in 2000. We have served 565 educators in 15 intensive PD programs and trainings since spring. Many of those programs are new this year. In addition to serving educators, we also conducted six technology camps for almost 100 youth, ages 11-16. As we recap our spring and summer highlights, we look forward to fall and the 2018-2019 academic year. I am hopeful you will keep in mind the challenges educators face and how important they are in preparing our next generation to address the key issues of society. Educators are at the heart of resolving at least three of the most important issues facing our country and the world at large:

  1. An educated and informed next generation of young people, which is essential to ensure we maintain our principles of a democratic and free society.
  2. A workforce that is well educated, which is essential to ensuring our country maintains its competitiveness in a global economy.
  3. An educated next generation is essential to give us a better chance for peace in the world.

Thank you to our educators as they continue to prepare our next generation. And thank you to KCI supporters who make our programs possible. The training educators receive at KCI to better serve and engage students is the best possible return on all of our investments in them, both supportive and financial.

Sincerely,
Gay Krause
